Welcome

The Australian Mental Health Party is a new independent political party representing the needs of people who live with a mental health condition or experience psychological distress. More broadly we aim to improve psychological and emotional well-being, to optimise human potential, to respect diversity, increase participation, and to help every person find a happier life in our society.

Alongside the needs of those who access the mental health care system, The Australian Mental Health Party draws together perspectives from family, friends, and loved ones. We also include mental health care practitioners, health professionals, communities, groups and workplaces, who all have a part to play in making our way of life mentally healthy in Australia.
