Engage and Participate in Mental Health
In June 2018, we commissioned the Engage and Participate in Mental Health Report to inform, support and enhance opportunities for consumer and carer engagement and participation.
We formed the Lived Experience Steering Group to co-design with Craze Lateral Solutions the Engage and Participate in Mental Health Project. A project website and an accompanying social media campaign publicised the project and informed people about opportunities to contribute. This included online surveys, stakeholder interviews, community conversations, yarning circles, and web-consultations.
The Lived Experience Steering Group for the Engage and Participate in Mental Health Project was chaired by Commissioner Jackie Crowe and over 1,000 consumers, carers, families, support people and other stakeholders shared their knowledge and experience through our consultation.
The Engage and Participate in Mental Health summary report describes the range and extent of engagement and participation across the mental health sector in Australia.
