The Nepean Blue Mountains PHN is calling for expressions of interest for anyone interested in participating in their Consumer and Carer Mental Health Team. It is open to community members who live in the Nepean Blue Mountains region (Lithgow, Hawkesbury, Penrith or the Blue Mountains) and have a lived experience of mental health issues.

The Consumer and Carer Mental Health Team will assist NBMPHN by providing advice on the planning
and design of strategies concerning mental health and suicide prevention services in the region. It is
not a peer support group; its main purpose is to influence mental health system reform and co-design
new services in the region.

They are looking to appoint a diverse range of community members with lived experience of mental
health issues, as a mental health consumer or carer (or both). If this describes you, and you are keen
to contribute to improved mental health care in your community, then we invite you to express your
interest by completing this form; Expression of Interest for Consumer Carer Mental Health Team Member.

 

Applications close on the 10th of November.
