A DOCUMENT will be released in the coming weeks recommending actions from a Wellways Australia community advocacy forum held in Warrnambool.

The forum was held on Wednesday and was convened by staff from the Warrnambool and Melbourne Wellways’ offices.

Rachael Lovelock from the head office in Melbourne said the forum attracted 27 people.

“We were thrilled with that result, half were from mental health services and the other half were people with lived experiences,” Ms Lovelock said. “The audience was keen not just to identify issues, but find actions to address them. We will be releasing a spotlight document to drive those actions.”
