Being – Mental Health Consumers

Being – Mental Health Consumers is the independent NSW peak organisation for people with lived/living experience of mental health issues and emotional distress. Our focus is on ensuring that the voices of people with mental health issues and emotional distress are heard and respected by decision-makers, service providers, and the community. We provide advice to the mental health sector based on people’s views, and their experiences of the ways mental health services are delivered. We are a values-based organisation whose work is underpinned by recovery-oriented principles, including respect, social justice, transparency, and a belief that recovery is possible for every individual. With a long standing history of 26 years of operation, Being – Mental Health Consumers is expanding and growing a service provision portfolio, to support people dealing with the day-to-day impacts of mental health issues in their daily living, as well as support the expansion and growth of the lived experience workforce.
