Health Select Committee Meeting About Petition for Better Mental-Healthcare Choices in NZ

Update: The Health Select Committee is not accepting submissions from the public for their meeting on the Petition for Better Mental-Healthcare Choices in NZ at this stage, as was advertised in the August 5th notice below. Submissions are to be accepted only from the petitioner (Annie Chapman) and the Ministry of Health.

As public submissions are typically invited, the team at Engage thought the same would be true of the meeting about the Petition for Better Mental-Healthcare Choices. We apologise for any inconvenience and frustration caused to anyone who had prepared or sent a submission in.

Engage Aotearoa has sent their submission in and encouraged the chair to consider it anyway.

We will keep working to turn our recommendations into realities,” says Engage Aotearoa service director, Miriam Larsen-Barr, “It’s what we do anyway and it won’t be the last opportunity we have to reach the decision-makers with our ideas for how to make the recovery journey easier for people living in NZ.

If you feel strongly about these issues and wonder how you can be part of the change in an ongoing way – contact Engage Aotearoa and introduce yourself. The team of volunteers is always keen for more hands on deck and more perspectives for the mix. Email admin@engagenz.co.nz
