Mental Health from the Ground Up:

Pioneering Consumer Activists Who Changed Mental Health

Saturday 11 September 2:00 pm - 4:00pm

Until the 1970s, mental health care was provided by mental hospitals where conditions were dire. In the 1980s, several former residents of these mental hospitals started to make their voices heard. During this event, we will interview three pioneering consumer advocates: Janet Meagher, Meg Smith, and Simon Champ. They were pioneering mental health activists at forefront of change in mental health care.
