The Forum will also consider other ways of improving how Mental Health Services involves Consumers and Carers in its service development.
A Consumer is someone with mental health issues, who uses public or private Mental Health Services. A Carer is someone who provides support to that person. A Carer can be a family member, partner, friend or neighbour.
The Forum will meet bimonthly and provide input into strategic planning, review draft and existing policies and procedures, as well as consult on action plans arising from surveys that are undertaken.
Anyone interested in being a member of the Forum will be asked to complete an application form. Applications close 5 April 2013.
