Think Effective Consultancy Can Help You Create...
A Community or Cross Sector Approach to 
Mental Health Improvement

I work with communities, local government & passionate individuals like you who want to make real & sustainable change happen in the space of mental health.

All across society amazing individuals work in silos trying to solve the mental health crisis, frustrated that it continues to worsen despite ongoing effort, and burnt out from trying to do it all.

Rural communities have a unique opportunity to bring the strengths that already exist in govt sectors, community and sporting groups together to create an intentional & collaborative approach to improve mental health & wellbeing outcomes.

Think Effective Consultancy can provide you with a grass roots, proven framework for improvement and clear actionable steps that will help you create a cross-sector or community approach that will lead to true mental health reform in your region and ongoing funding to support it.

Why Do You Need A 
Community Approach 
To Mental Health?

Because this is about saving people’s lives!

This is not about watching the statistics, it is about changing them.

It is about working together and taking people’s individual strengths that exist and bringing them together to improve localised mental health outcomes.

It is about making sustainable change happen from the ground up to ensure that mental health and wellbeing is a priority across all aspects of society.

It is about ensuring that passionate people, like you, don’t burn out from lack of traction and that you, instead, create true change in the space of mental health.
