A mental health advocate is encouraging Wagga residents to take advantage of the Mental Health Commission's visit. Jenna Roberts, deputy commissioners for the NSW Mental Health Commission, said the forum is a safe place for people to talk about what has or hasn't been working.
"We know this region has been affected by suicide so it would be helpful to hear from people who have attempted or someone who has lost someone," she said.
"We want to know what has helped people or where the gaps are.
"We are interested in hearing about communities and organisations working well together as well to see what kind of initiatives can be built."
Ms Roberts said it's also about learning what keeps people well from a broader perspective.
"Is that affordable housing, employment or education," she said.
NSW Mental Health Commissioner Catherine Lourey says she is looking forward to hearing from the community about local successes, challenges and what makes change possible.
"My hope is that the programs and initiatives shared will demonstrate what is working well and inspire others involved in mental health reform," she said.
The Commission will be hosting a full day workshop at the Wagga RSL. Registrations open from 8.30am with the consultation from 9am to 4pm on June 20.
