This is a resource centre run entirely by people diagnosed with “mental illness” (we choose to call ourselves “consumers”). We provide information, training, support and advice to consumer-run groups and projects (or more specifically, “Consumer Developed Initiatives” (CDIs)). We also support what we call “consumer perspective,” recognising that the lived experience of “mental illness” provides a crucial source of insight that is of value and must be respected. We believe that we are part of an important cultural shift, towards valuing and respecting the lived experience of “mental illness.”
The purpose of the Mental Health Lived Experience Register (the Register) is to provide a mechanism for people living with lived experience to provide feedback, observations, ideas and recommendations for improving Mental Health Services in South Australia.
