Consumer advisory group seeks new membersJan 18, 2023
The Mid North Coast Local Health District (MNCLHD) Mental Health Alcohol and Other Drugs Service invites residents to join the Mental Health Alcohol and Other Drugs Consumer Advisory Group.
The Consumer Advisory Group, which was established in 2016, provides an opportunity for people with a lived experience of mental illness, alcohol or other drugs to co-design services with MNCLHD.
Mental Health Consumer Partnership Coordinator Nicholas Kosseris said consumers, carers and community members play an important role contributing to the development, planning and evaluation of Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs Services.
“Members of the Consumer Advisory Group have the opportunity to be involved in the decision-making processes of our Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs Services and are able to provide feedback directly to management,” Mr Kosseris said.
“Applications are encouraged from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, those from culturally diverse backgrounds, people with disabilities and all age groups, especially young people.”
Anyone interested in joining the Mental Health Alcohol and Other Drugs Consumer Advisory Group is encouraged to apply by Thursday 30 January 2023. The group meets every two months (six meetings a year).
For more information, or to request an application form, contact Nicholas Kosseris by email on Nicholas.Kosseris@health.nsw.gov.au or phone 6589 2585.
