As the NSW peak body for people living with mental health issues, BEING – Mental Health Consumers provides opportunities for mental health consumers to participate in various committees. See below for current opportunities to get involved.
BEING Culturally & Linguistically Diverse Communities Advisory Committee
We have established the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Communities Advisory Committee to focus on mental health issues and challenges specifically affecting CALD communities. Committee members will share community perspectives and provide input to assist us with our broader policy and advocacy work as well as other programs. This is a paid opportunity.

The Rural and Remote Communities Advisory Committee has been established to highlight the views and perspectives of people living in rural and remote communities in NSW and their experiences of mental health issues and challenges accessing services and supports. Committee members will share community perspectives from people outside of our cities who live with the unique challenges of distance. This is a paid opportunity.

BEING – Mental Health Consumers Co-design Committee
BEING – Mental Health Consumers recognises the importance of including consumer voices in the design and development of the services we operate and view our members as intrinsic to the advocacy work we undertake in influencing policy and service design for people living with mental health issues. We have established a Co-design Committee to assist us with our advocacy work and the establishment of several exciting new programs. Some key works of the Co-design Committee may include co-design of policies and procedures, information tips and factsheets. There are opportunities for working groups to form from Co-design Committee membership, and these working groups may focus on individual projects and programs.
This is a paid opportunity. The BEING – Mental Health Consumers Co-design Committee is open to people who live with mental health issues (consumers) and who have experience in participating in systemic advocacy and program committee work.
