We talk to stakeholders about mental health nursing

Representing the profession to politicians, policymakers and healthcare organisations is an important part of our work. The ACMHN regularly prepares submissions to consultation processes and inquiries to support the mental health nursing profession.

During this process, we often ask our members for input and share their insights and expertise to make submissions as relevant and impactful as possible.
