Together with Consumers of Mental Health Western Australia, Mental Health Matters 2, Carers WA, Helping Minds, and Health Consumers Council WA, the WA Association for Mental Health invites health professionals to a lived experience forum for the Review of the Clinical Governance of Public Mental Health Services.
The forum is open to all people with lived experience, including individuals, families and carers, who would like to share their ideas for improving safety and quality.
Join mental health advocacy organisations and panel members from the Mental Health Clinical Governance Review to share views on key actions to improve the mental health system.
They will be exploring key actions to address priority concerns in safety and quality, to improve oversight of services and to prevent and resolve issues earlier. They will also look at the role of lived experience partnerships in achieving these key actions.
