Participation is fundamental to Being’s key purpose of ensuring that mental health consumer views are heard by policy makers, service providers and the community.
Participation for people who experience mental health issue is both important to assist in making important decisions in things such as one’s treatment choice, but also in providing feedback and input to policy makers, health services, advocacy organisations such as Being, and the government about how best to shape service delivery in the future. Participation also refers to how people living with mental health issues can be engaged in the community, employment, training and education.
Participation is beneficial for people who live with mental health issues, and it has been shown that people with access to social networks cope better with the challenges they face in life.
