Webinar Two: Making Co-Design Real – Is it Possible in Our Current Mental Health Landscape?

Air Date: December 8, 2020

The concept and principles of co-design is not new. However, reoccurring social, cultural, and political challenges within the mental health sector has brought to light the need for collective discussions about its effectiveness.

With all these interrelated challenges in mind, what does co-design mean in today’s mental health landscape? What is its role? Are we co-designing mental health systems in all aspects – from designing, planning, implementing and evaluating?

What barriers and benefits are there in embedding co-design in our mental health systems?

This one hour webinar will explore a highly topical subject with some key leaders in the field, who will be asked to view co-design through their respective ‘lenses’.

Featuring Maggie Toko (CEO of VMIAC), Katrina Armstrong (Executive Officer of Mental Health Carers Australia, and Christine Morgan (CEO of National Mental Health Commission).

Moderated by Natasha Mitchell.
