We’re launching a new blog on mental health in Australia. Here’s our manifesto.

We are excited to be launching Our Mental Health Matters, a group blog which aims to share analysis, opinion and discussion of mental health, mental health care and the mental health caring professions in Australia. It will contain writing by mental health practitioners, educators, researchers, advocates, carers and people living with mental illness.

You can read our manifesto here. We hope it inspires you to get involved as a writer and commenter. Over there you’ll also find some¬†information about us, Ceara Rickard and Sarah Stokely. We’re both passionate about mental health and improving the practise of mental health in Australia, and we look forward to discussing and learning with you.

We are on the lookout for people to contribute to the blog so please share this post with anyone you think might be interested. Visit the manifesto to find out how to express your interest. Or simply leave a comment below.
