Release the funding for the National Mental Health Consumer Organisation

This petition had 235 supporters

Dear supporters,

The Consumer Reference Group (CRG) and Mental Health Australia met in Canberra on 5-6 February 2015. It was the last time they would meet face to face, signalling the final stage of our journey, which begun back in June 2012.

The project phase to establish the new mental health consumer peak organisation will finish at the end of May 2015. A significant amount of our meeting was spent discussing ongoing funding uncertainty, transitioning the project to an independent organisation should funding be secured, and longer term sustainability. 

This petition calls on your support to help secure funding by contacting your local MP. A template letter has been attached with the Communique that you could consider using, and a link to local MPs and other politicians has also been included.
