Consumer reference group
Our Consumer Reference Group includes a range of people with a lived experience of mental illness and a wonderful array of skills.
This Group is greatly valued and contributes enormously to the operation of the PIR program, including vetting all of our promotional materials before they are published. One example includes the development of the Mental Health Road Map resource.
Carer reference group
This is a pre-existing group convened by Queensland Health and members have been generous in sharing their expertise with us in representing the concerns of carers, who are so critically important in their support for people living with a mental illness.
This group had very proudly assisted in the development and ongoing maintenance of the Mental Health Resources 4 Carers (MHR4C) website.
This group is currently seeking members! Please contact us to express your interest.
