VMIAC is working in partnership with SHARC to launch Our Agency, a new place and space for people with lived experience of mental illness and psychological distress to support mental health and wellbeing.
We are working closely with SHARC and the Department on this project and are bringing our critical lens to this partnership. Our involvement in this project does not impact our work as strong systemic advocates for lived experience voices/consumers. We remain committed to advocating for individuals, and for wider system improvements, and continue to keep all aspects of the system accountable. We hope that these collaborations help build a system that is safe and healing for all consumers. (-Craig Wallace, VMIAC CEO).
