Consumer Conversations – Letter to Minister Hunt

Consumer Conversations use social media to network and provide support and share information about the various activities that members of the group are involved with.

Members of the group are involved in various activities at a local, area, PHN, state and national level.

The group is on Facebook and uses the definition: Consumer Perspective from The Kit as the guiding principle for how it decides what issues can be on the agenda with the group

consumer perspective: a way of seeing the world in the light of experience/s of mental/emotional distress. Includes experiences of seeking support (of various kinds), of stigma in the community and within services. Also incorporates a sense of solidarity with others who have had similar experiences.

The letter is the first time the group Consumer Conversations has decided to have a coordinated campaign on an issue and will be sending this out to there other networks for comment prior to asking Minister Hunt for an appointment to discuss if he will support reinstating the concept of a National Mental Health Consumer Organisation that is properly funded by the Commonwealth

A copy of the Letter can be obtained here at this link

Visiting Consumer Run Organisations in Kansas

These are some of the images from the last couple of days while out shopping for new Marbles Runs in Wichita Kansas.

The Consumer Run Organisations we have visited have been excited about being. Involved in developing a Kansas Team Marbles Challenge in Kansas during he next couple of years.

The Kits we have settled on are different from the ones we use in Australia, however the skill needed to build them and have a fast time rolloing the marbles still requires participants to focus on the task at hand.

After five days of putting the Marble Run kit together Gary Parker is taking around 5 and 1/2 minutes to construct the kit, and yesterday he rolled the marbles through in 53.28 seconds,

Looking forward to visiting the othe 7 CRO’s this coming week.
