The National Mental Health Commission is seeking nominations of Australians with a lived experience of mental health issues, either as a person living with mental illness, or as a primary family member or other significant support person, to work with and contribute to the work of the Commission.
The Commission is looking to select around 10 nominees from a broad range of experiences, who will have the opportunity to participate in an individual mentoring and leadership program, and contribute to mental health reform in Australia.
National Mental Health Commission Chair, Professor Alan Fels says, 'This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to helping all Australians achieve the best possible mental health and wellbeing. I encourage anyone interested to visit the Commission website and find out more.'
Young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are encouraged to nominate. Nominations for the positions close on Friday 20 December 2013 at 5pm AEDT.
The new initiative is in partnership with the Mental Health Council of Australia, and is supported by the National Mental Health Consumer and Advisory Board.
