Abstract: This paper aims to provide some background information about the Community Awareness Network & Dadirri Organisation (CANDO) project which started in December '99. The CANDO project provides a coordinated approach for mental health services to have improved participation of consumers & carers in decision making at an area level. CANDO works with local Area Mental Health Services to link consumer & carer initiatives throughout the area and generate service planning in partnership with consumers & carers to contribute to evidence-based programs in mental health to ensure that the focus is on consumer & carer needs across the GMAHS.
