Development and introduction in the Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District (NBMLHD)

This project aims to ensure that people who live in the NBMLHD and who experience mental illness and mental distress have the opportunity to develop their own advance statement, which is a tool to support personal control and decision-making during times of mental health crisis. SPRC is working with the Advanced Statements Project Critical Reference Group, comprising consumer, family members and worker representatives, to plan and implement the project. Other responsibilities include stakeholder liaison, designing and managing empirical research with consumers and families regarding the design and use of advance statements, a literature review and subsequent analysis and reporting.
