Lived Experience – a stakeholder for the first time in this process!
|During 2021/2022 Mental Health Matters 2 led the lived experience consultation for individuals and families who have experience in mental health and criminal justice systems to express their views on a set of principles for forensic mental health in Australia. This involved engaging with people with lived and living experience across Australia who participated via a survey or in one of 4 online workshops.|
MHM2 worked in partnership with Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, Queensland Centre for Mental Health Research; Queensland Forensic Mental Health Services; University of Melbourne. The one-year project was funded by the National Mental Health Commission: https://haveyoursay.mentalhealthcommission.gov.au/commission-initiated-projects-external-consultation-opportunities.
The project was completed and the report submitted to the NMHC on 30th June 2022.
The final report is available at: https://qcmhr.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/10/Principles-for-Forensic-Mental-Health-Report_smallfile1.pdf
