EOI: Lived Experience consumer representative wanted to support the implementation of the WA Bilateral Schedule on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

Published on 13 Jul 2022

Do you have a Lived Experience of mental health/suicide related issues, including significant engagement with services?

If you answered yes, you could make a difference as part of the Commonwealth and WA governments’ new Western Australian Joint Service Planning and Governance Committee (Committee) which will support implementation of the WA Bilateral Schedule on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.

On behalf of the Committee, the Mental Health Commission is seeking expressions of interest to appoint one consumer representative to the Committee.

The Bilateral Schedule sits under the National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Agreement which is the first agreement of its kind and sets out the shared intention of the Commonwealth and state and territory governments to work in partnership to improve the mental health of all Australians and to enhance the services of the Australian mental health and suicide prevention system.

The National Agreement recognises the importance of consulting with those with lived experience of mental ill health and/or suicide and their families and carers throughout its implementation.
