New Like Minds, Like Mine National Plan 2014-2019

The Ministry of Health has just released the new Like Minds, Like Mine National Plan 2014-2019.

The plan sets the guiding principles for service delivery of the Like Minds, Like Mine programme for the next five years. It provides direction for the continuation of the journey towards greater social inclusion for people with mental illness in New Zealand. Download it here: (PDF)

It begins: “This Like Minds, Like Mine National Plan 2014–2019 will take the programme into and past its 20th year. It is timely then to look back on its considerable success in reducing stigma and discrimination and to consider how the programme needs to evolve in order to build on that success in the future.”
