The disadvantage experienced by those with chronic mental illness is profound and yet it is one of the most under resourced health and societal issues. It affects not only the individual but their families, communities, workplaces and community services.
The Don Dunstan Foundation is committed to working with the mental health sector and the broader community to identify current trends and issues for mental health support services, to influence policy changes and to provide direction for improvement.
We seek to increase sector-wide understanding of what is working and not working in our public mental health sector and in the community generally.
