Collaborating with local, state and federal services


The overarching purpose of the Professional Liaison Team is to work alongside the Mindful Margaret River Board to further the objectives of Mindful Margaret River by communicating in four directions.  That is:

  • Supporting the Board of Mindful Margaret River to achieve strategic goals
  • Collaborating with other members of the PLT to better understand each other’s work and to coordinate efforts between agencies,
  • Providing communication links with PLT members’ own organizations to build shared understanding between the agency and Mindful Margaret River and, 
  • Being actively engaged with members of the Taskforce and members of the community in ways that further the goal of enhancing levels of mental health and well-being in the Augusta Margaret River community.
