A message from Mark Orr, CEO Flourish Australia
“The TheMHS (Mental Health Services) Conference at the end of August 2018 was a great opportunity for 18 people from Flourish Australia to connect with the breadth and depth of the community mental health sector across Australia and New Zealand.
“I have been inspired by the presentations the Flourish Australia team have made. My pride in everyone has been expanded more by the courage demonstrated as people have shared their personal stories, spoken in front of people or at a conference for the first time, asked great questions or debated issues with other conference delegates.
“The team were fantastic Ambassadors for Flourish Australia, and represented us all beautifully. Our approach to being a recovery oriented organisation shone through and was commented on positively by others.
“On top of all of that I was delighted that the Chair of our Board, Professor Elizabeth More AM joined us for Thursday and presented a paper on the NDIS and Organisational change. Elizabeth was able to hear some of our presentations and was very impressed by people’s passion and commitment.
“Our presence was well promoted through social media, an amazing stall in the exhibitors’ hall and an updated promotional video. People were commenting about how good all of this was.
“My thanks to everyone on the Flourish Australia team here in Adelaide, Matthew, Fay, Mark, Jade, Clare, Edwina, Bruce, Peter, Michael, Monique, Glenn, Daniel, Kim, Grant, Alison, Peter, and Matthew for their amazing work.”
