As the NSW peak body for people with lived/living experience of mental health issues, BEING – Mental Health Consumers will often have opportunities for mental health consumers to join committees on various topics. See below for current opportunities to get involved.

BEING YOUTH COMMITTEE

Are you between the ages of 16-25 and live in NSW? Are you passionate about social justice and issues affecting youth? Do you have your own lived/living experience of mental health issues, mental distress and/or suicidal ideation or attempts and want to share your story and perspectives? Do you want to influence change on a state level?

The BEING Youth Committee will target the real-life experiences of young people with mental health issues and suicidal thoughts. As an advisory group, the BEING Youth Committee will look at all aspects of the work of BEING – Mental Health Consumers and advise on important project work, policy, system reform, and advocacy needed to bring about change for young people across NSW.
