Every year, the Commission conducts a series of visits to communities across NSW to explore the capacity of Government and community-managed organisations to respond appropriately to people’s mental health needs in or close to their own home. These visits are intended to enhance the Commission’s understanding of any barriers to wider implementation of community-based support. They are also an opportunity to identify and highlight programs and projects that successfully embody community-based support and recovery values, which may serve as models for reform in other regions. Communities visited in 2016-17 include Port Stephens, Clarence Valley and Orange.
