This blog was started to higlight the work being done by people across Australia with lived experience with mental health problems working and volunteering within the mental health sector in government, public, private or community managed services.
This site is being developed by Douglas Holmes.
I am interested in encouraging other consumers or carers who are either being paid or volunteering to improve the mental health system to become editors and submit posts to the site – register below
The titles for people working or volunteering may include:
Peer support worker
Youth Peer Worker
Aboriginal Peer Worker
Consumer Participation Officer
We encourage others who support consumer and carer workers with lived experience working within the mental health service to register their support and let us know what is happening in your town.
