One of the outcomes of the recent International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership Exchange 2017 was closer ties between the Australian and New Zealand Mental Health Commissions.
“Our...organisations have worked closely for several years, sharing valuable knowledge and ideas. We have now updated this memorandum of understanding (MoU) to reflect our ongoing collaborative relationship. I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues towards improving the mental health and wellbeing of the people across our jurisdictions”, said John Feneley.
