Wellways Australia has a vision for society’s future, in which people experiencing mental ill health and psychosocial disability, their families and friends, are understood, accepted and have the same life opportunities as other citizens. Our advocacy vision is of inclusive communities that celebrate diversity and highlight the strength that diversity brings, challenging traditional prejudices and the exclusion they foster, while replacing marginalisation with expressions of welcome.
Wellways' advocacy team develops and coordinates projects that are geared towards positive change. In 2017 we will be hosting advocacy workshops across our regions. Consumers, families, community organisations are individuals who are interested in learning about advocacy, and creating community based plans, are encouraged to attend.
