Presentation 1: Consumer Leadership Now – VMIAC’s Recommendation 29 campaign (Victoria).
Author: Craig Wallace
Craig will be talking about VMIAC’s campaign to get Recommendation 29 (The Consumer Agency) funded. Recommendation 29 is one of the 65 recommendations from the Final Report from the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System. Despite the Andrews’ Government commitment to implement all of the recommendations of the report, Recommendation 29 received no funding in the recent 2023-24 State Budget. According to Victoria’s Department of Health website, Recommendation 29 is meant to: • deliver accredited training and resources to aid the development of organisations led by people with lived experience of mental illness or psychological distress; • develop and deliver mental health and wellbeing services led by people with lived experience of mental illness or psychological distress; and • facilitate co-location, shared resourcing, learning opportunities and the creation of new partnerships and networks between people with lived experience of mental illness or psychological distress and the organisations they lead.
