Hello wonderful community members. We have an exciting piece of work to share with you! SANE Australia has recently launched ‘Our Turn to Speak’ - a national survey that aims to give a voice to Australian’s living with complex mental health issues.
In order to advocate for better support for people affected by complex mental health issues and to improve social outcomes, we are seeking a sample of 7,000 respondents. The survey seeks to understand people’s experiences across a broad range of “life domains” including: housing, employment, education, mental/healthcare, finance, media, relationships and many many more areas.
More than 690,000 Australians aged 18 and over live with complex mental health issues. We want to find out if and how your experience of these issues impacts the way people treat you. Have your say. Find out if you’re eligible to participate. Giving a voice to Australians living with complex mental health issues. Our Turn to Speak.
This is a really incredible and exciting advocacy piece. Check out the website for more details, there is also information around how to share this with friends, family and networks.
While carers’ perspectives are incredibly valuable, this particular survey seeks to understand the life experiences of those people themselves living with severe complex mental health issues. Carers can support the project by promoting the survey with the people they support and through their networks.
