Our Work

Working for the sector

MHCC works to support, advocate and strengthen the community-managed mental health sector for our members, and the sector as a whole. Our work includes submissions to government and government departments, initiating projects to develop the capacity of the sector, developing sector-informed training and advising the wider community on best-practice.


MHCC undertakes a great variety of research, policy and sector capacity building projects to ultimately improve quality of life for people living with mental health conditions. Here we highlight some our most recent projects and offer access to all MHCC projects in recent times that aim to develop the community mental health sector.
