Western Australia

New collaborative tool to help improve mental and physical health

The WA Government has provided a $239,450 Lotterywest grant to Consumers of Mental Health Western Australia (CoMHWA) to help disseminate and implement the My Medicines and Me (M3Q) tool in the community.

M3Q is a collaborative communication tool that consumers can use to understand, track, and communicate side-effects of medications with their health care professional.

It is aimed at empowering consumers and helping to improve mental and physical health care outcomes for Western Australians with mental health issues.

It will bring benefits to individuals, their families and clinicians by enabling health care professionals to be more informed from a consumer perspective.

CoMHWA is Western Australia’s body by and for people with lived experience of mental health issues.
