Join the conversation

11 July 2013


From Monday 22 July to Sunday 11 August, we are encouraging people to meet in homes, workplaces, cafés, parks and public spaces around Australia to have ‘Contributing Life Conversations’.

These conversations are about sharing what ‘A Contributing Life’ means to you and those close to you, and discussing what gives each of our lives meaning and purpose. They are based on four simple questions, designed to take less than an hour.

This initiative is part of the National Mental Health Commission’s National Contributing Life Project, and will help build a rounded picture of people’s lives and experiences. The Commission will use this and other information to help drive meaningful improvement for the mental health and wellbeing of all Australians. It will also inform the 2013 Report Card on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention to be released in November 2013.

Ultimately, this is about ensuring the voices of people are at the front and centre of mental health reform.

Hosting a Contributing Life Conversation is your chance to be part of this important national conversation on mental health and wellbeing, and anyone can get involved.
