Funder by the Department of Human Services Auspiced by Our Community


These help sheets have been wrtten by a range of consumers. They're designed to provide a consumer perspective on issues affecting people diagnosed with 'mental illness'.

The writers of these help sheets have years of experience in the consumer movement, but they don't speak for all consumers. Of course, people with a diagnosis of 'mental illness' do not all have the same views; we disagree with each other on many points. We know that you will find your own path - we offer these documents in a spirit of "take what you like and leave the rest".
