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 – 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.
