End of an era HVN Australia

Dear all,

It is with regret that I am writing to advise that the Hearing Voices Network Australia (HVNA) website is no longer live. Some weeks ago Richmond Wellbeing made a decision to take the site down due to little traffic reported and also due to a decision to no longer participate in the national scene here in Australia. Richmond currently remains funded by the Western Australian Mental Health Commission to run the HVN Western Australia (HVNWA) which operates as a program of Richmond Wellbeing (in a similar way that Voices Vic operates within Prahran Mission in Victoria). HVNWA’s website has also been taken down as HVNWA has been integrated into the Richmond Wellbeing site.
As many of you will know Richmond Wellbeing has a new CEO as of 12 months now and so new strategic priorities have been set.
Our thanks and gratitude remain strong and deep to our former CEO Joe Calleja who championed the HV work in Australia since 2005 till his semi-retirement in 2016. My role has been scaled back to focus more within the Western Australian scene, however, I am personally supportive of the Australian grass roots steering group which is working toward developing a national entity.
We invite you, as you find the time, to take down any links you have to HVNA.
Please share this information with relevant people who I may have missed or may not have their email addresses.
Warm regards
Lyn
Please note I work Tuesday – Friday across all our services.
