CMHL is committed to supporting the statewide mental health workforces to implement the findings of the Royal Commission. We were funded by the Department of Health for a statewide lived experience co-design position. The Lived Experience Co-Design Project Lead supported the Victorian state-funded mental health services to increase their knowledge, confidence, and understanding of co-design approaches in mental health services.  

We developed a suite of resources to support collective learning and avenues for collaborative learning around co-design. This co-design introduction information pack includes: 

Our Co-design Team: 

We are committed to using co-design principles and mindsets to lead by example and created an internal co-design team that included: 

  • Deb, Lived Experience Co-Design Lead 

  • Nina, Administration Officer 

  • Rosie, Director 

  • Beth, Leadership Development Coordinator 

What awe did? 

The initial phase of this work was focussed on designing the role. We were guided by the sector to gain a greater understanding of the workforce's development needs. This included:  

  • Reviewing the information collected in our scoping to develop a suite of tools and resources to support co-design in action 

  • Creating a resource hub on our website with resources to support co-design work 

  • Developing education and training based on the identified needs of the workforce. 

  • Providing secondary consultations to services in relation to co-design and co-production.

We worked with the Department of Health Mental Health Division and the Human-Centred Design Hub, and TACSI to support this work.  

This project ended in May 2023. A summary of the work we did is available link HERE
