Do you have lived experience or a special interest in mental health?

Centacare is recruiting new members for the Mental Health Consumer, Carer and Community Advisory Group (C3AG).

The group provides meaningful input on the way our mental health services are delivered and is an opportunity to share community wisdom, feedback and new ideas relevant to the sector.

We operate within a strong ethical and culturally-inclusive framework, informed by the values and principles of Catholic Social Teaching.

As a C3AG member, you will use your professional or lived experience of mental illness or mental health issues in an advisory capacity.

In addition to providing feedback on proposed new policies, plans, procedures, materials and projects, you will:

·         Partner with Centacare to make meaningful change

·         Identify any service gaps or concerns from a community perspective

·         Participate in education and training of staff, and in research as consultants when requested by the C³AG Coordinator

·         Be willing to express a point of view and share ideas that contribute to positive participation within the group.

We value your perspective! There are no restrictions on age, gender, ethnicity or ability.

C3AG members meet bi-monthly for two-hour meetings and receive $180 for three hours, including one-hour preparation time.

The meetings are conducted in an informal way at 45 Wakefield St, Adelaide, from 4pm to 6pm. Basement car parking is available.
