Our purpose is to ensure that the voices of people with lived/living experience of mental health issues are heard by decision makers, service providers and the community with a focus on systemic advocacy.
We want to influence the decisions that will impact your experience of using mental health services. Our videos provide meaningful consumer engagement and participation and for you to share your voice.
