We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land, sea and waterways upon which we live and work. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present, and recognise their strong and continuing connection to land, culture and spirit.
We acknowledge people with lived experience of a mental health issue, especially those people who suffered through discrimination, abuse and the denial of human rights. Despite having no power or status, they challenged, spoke out and created pathways that give us a voice today. We acknowledge their strength, resilience and courage, advocating to protect rights for people with mental health issues, to be able to live a purposeful and contributing life.
We also acknowledge the important contribution of families and carers to supporting family members and friends to pursue their recovery journeys, and for their partnership with our organisations.
