Forum: Community based adult learning, health and wellbeing



TreeAdult Learning Australia is committed to equitable lifelong and lifewide learning. This is a central aspect of the adult and community education (ACE) sector’s role in supporting the Australian community. Recent reforms in mental health emphasise ‘person-centred approaches and choices’. We welcome this trend but are conscious that such reforms bring significant change. People must be supported to successfully navigate the choices available to them to improve their access to high quality health services.

On the 14th October 2016, Adult Learning Australia held a forum that explored the role of ACE in supporting equitable and effective mental health (MH) reform and to stimulate debate among ACE sector peaks and our peers in the field of community mental health.

Here is the Forum Program.
