    A big thank you to everyone who took the time to participate in our National Community Consultation Surveys: 'The Big Survey', and 'Because Language Matters'. Thank you also to anyone who has shared it among their networks, family, and/or friends– we greatly appreciate it.

    We are now collating all the results, along with the data collected from our Postcard Activity and will compile them in our Final Report in June.

    A big thank you to the Brisbane Northside Elders Group at Kurbingui.

    We were fortunate enough, as part of our lived experience led, National Community consultation activities to spend the morning with this wise gathering of elders who generously shared their stories and perspectives in accessing mental health support and how technology might improve that.

    Thanks to everyone who attended and made this conversation so rich and insightful.
    Special thanks to Ged Farmer, Glenda Jones-Terare and everyone at Kurbingui for working with Leilani Darwin to make this day possible 👏
