A message from our CEO - December 2023

The end of the year provides opportunity for us to reflect on the year that has past, and think about what we might do next year.  This year we have seen many personal achievements of people accessing Flourish Australia’s supports as they have pursued their mental health recovery goals.  Our 2023 Annual Report helped showcase some of these amazing recovery stories, including Brad’s, which appears above. We are privileged to be invited by people to walk their journey with them, and often also with their families and carers, always learning from each other and growing as a result. 

As we end the year, I would like to thank each of you for being part of our journey this year. Thank for you engaging with us through Flourishing News, as well as through other contacts you have had with us this year. Your support of and interest in Flourish Australia’s work is deeply valued and gratefully received.

We look forward to the new challenges 2024 will bring, with a continuing focus on supporting people with a lived experience of a mental health issue to live the lives they wish to, as part of their local communities – the foundation of our Social Citizenship Framework.

On behalf of everyone at Flourish Australia, I wish you a safe Summer break with people who care about you.

Mark Orr AM

Chief Executive
