Lived Experience Australia has two different workshops currently available, delivered free via Zoom as interactive sessions (places are strictly limited). All workshops are delivered by those with a lived experience as a consumer and/or carer in mental health (see our list of facilitators at the bottom of this page).
1. For Consumers and Carers:
These free 2 x 2 hour interactive Zoom workshops aim to support people with a lived experience of mental illness or mental health issues, families and carers to advocate at individual and organisational levels within the mental health system.

We recommend attending or watching a recording of the Introductory Webinar prior to attending the workshops.
