by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: 2005; Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2005Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2004Summary: The BSL welcomes this opportunity to contribute to the Inquiry by the Senate Select Committee on Mental Health. Although not a mental health service provider, many of the people with whom the BSL works are living with mental health problems, contributing to the disadvantage they experience. The Terms of Reference are broader than BSL experience or expertise. This submission, therefore, focuses on those Terms of Reference of greatest relevance to our work and to the lives of the people we support. Our starting point is that many people living with a mental illness experience levels of exclusion and discrimination that are unacceptable?and addressing the complexity of issues that compound this exclusion requires concerted leadership and action by all levels of government..Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1), BSL Archives (1).
