VMIAC is a strong supporter of growing the lived experience consumer workforce
Victorian Mental Illness Awareness Council (VMIAC) is Victoria’s peak body for people who have a lived experience of mental health or emotional challenges. We are run by consumers, for consumers.
The Royal Commission into Mental Health Services in Victoria recommended that people with lived experience of mental health challenges be placed at the centre of all new initiatives and the transformation of the mental health system. A key recommendation was the establishment of a ‘New Agency’ which would provide support and training for consumers to take a more effective role in this work.
Considerable work has been undertaken by SHARC and VMIAC on the shaping of the New Agency and it has huge potential. Unfortunately, funding has not been allocated in the State budget and we do not think this is appropriate. In fact, it has major detrimental implications for the future of services and the system impact on people with lived and living experience in the future.
SHARC and VMIAC wish to advocate for a change to this budget decision and are looking for a consultant with experience in running campaigns to assist us commencing immediately.
We are looking for a person with experience and skills in running advocacy campaigns, knowledge of the mental health system and its impact on people with lived and living experience, capacity to work in a team with volunteers and paid staff and understanding of the ways in which members can be motivated and engaged.
For further information contact VMIAC’s CEO Craig Wallace at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0499 176 939.
