The Centre for Mental Health Learning invites you to our inaugural Consumer Lived Experience Workforce Online Conference:

 

"Changing Narratives: Shaping Our Collective Integrity"

 

Event Date & Time: Tuesday 26 March, 2024 - 9:30am to 4:30pm
Come together for a day of meaningful discussion, compelling thought trains, empathic nourishment, invigorating connection, hopeful comradery, with a little artistic flair thrown in for good measure! 

 
Join us and a phenomenal line up of Consumer Experts – both local and national – as we share in the values, learnings, needs, knowledge-base, strengths, ethics, and future development of the Consumer Lived Experience Workforce in Victoria. 

 
This day aims to inspire and galvanise our Consumer Workforce collective, setting the scene for cultural and systemic reforms across the sector: creating environments that are informed by Consumer Perspective and led by Consumer Expertise.  

 
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”  
- attributed to Margaret Mead
