Collaboration or chaos: a consumer perspective.

Author information

  • 1H Connor and Associates, Coorparoo, Queensland, Australia.


Consumer participation in all levels of mental health service provision is now government policy throughout Australia. However, effective participation by consumers requires collaboration between mental health nurses and consumers. Effective collaboration and the partnership between those who provide and receive services requires trust and respect on both sides. Accompanying consumers on their 'journey' of wellness and recovery is likely to also provide mental health nurses with opportunities for personal and professional growth.
