Emerald win logo

MHCC ended 2015 on a high note winning a
2015 iDX Learning by Design Awards.

Our recently released Capacit-e course, Language
of Mental Health Recovery, really struck a chord with
the judges who awarded it an Emerald Award
(second place) for Bite Size Learning alongside large
corporations such as Woolworths and Bank of Queensland.
This is an e-learning industry award aimed at recognising
the trailblazers and the creative strides being made in
Bite Size Learning.

Our Online Learning Officer, Katherine Fardian, will also
be presenting the project at the iDX Conference in March 2016.

Language of Mental Health Recovery is part of the
Capacit-e Mental Health Recovery Suite

Representing the community mental health sector for over 30 years

The Mental Health Coordinating Council (MHCC) is the peak body for community mental health organisations in New South Wales.

MHCC has been supporting community based organisations to deliver services to people with mental health issues, their families and carers since 1983.

We strive to raise the profile of mental health through our projects, submissions and by promoting partnership development.

MHCC is currently accredited under Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS).

Because mental health is everybody's business

MHCC respects our earth and promotes people's fundamental human rights. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land and value the lived experience of people recovering from mental illness both past and present.
