Spiritual Health Association advocates for spiritual care as an integral part of healthcare in a variety of ways including calls to action, conference presentations, membership of committees and preparation of submissions and feedback to relevant consultations.
SHA is advocating for investment in spiritual care in the health sector in the 2023/24 Federal Budget to expand the availability and accessibility of spiritual care as an integral part of safe, high-quality holistic healthcare.
SHLEAC formed in June 2021 to raise awareness through leadership, education and consultation of the need, importance, and place of spiritual care in mental health care. SHLEAC will achieve this by contributing to the Victorian Mental Health Reform process via the principles of co-design and co-production.
As the host organisation, Spiritual Health Association welcomes the expertise and guidance from the advisory committee members Evan Bichara, Maria Dimopoulous and Kevin Treloar. The committee is led by SHA's Mental Health Leader, Jenny Greenham.
