The Lived Experience Ideas Exchange is a new BEING event.
BEINGs inaugural Lived Experience Ideas Exchange was held on Thursday 13 October 2016.
The event brought together consumer advocates, policy makers and service providers in the mental health sector to network, share information on new initiatives, and discuss opportunities for collaboration.
The day included a mix of presentations and workshops, covering a diversity of initiatives, many of which were consumer-driven and led. Some of the initiatives were already up and running, and were inviting more people to join. Some initiatives were at their early stages of being developed, and were seeking feedback from people to help it grow.
The event received really positive feedback from the people who attended. We are currently looking at the feedback we’ve got in detail to help us plan for next year’s event.
Some comments from the day:
“Thank you for the day. I really liked the diversity of presentations, the pace of the day and the catering was a hit!”
“It ignited ideas in my mind about how I can contribute and use my lived experience in a positive way, being supported, educated and access/utilise great training opportunities”
