Following the advice of stakeholders, the National Mental Health Commission has established the Equally Well Implementation Committee (EWIC) to implement and govern Equally Well in Australia. Membership encompasses private, public and community representation including lived experience. The inaugural meeting of EWIC will be held on 2 August 2017.
