Paid Consultation: Co-design of a Consumer-Led Residential Service

Mind Australia and Alfred Mental and Addiction Health (AMAH) are leading the Stage 2 co-design of the consumer-led residential service, Recommendation 5 of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System interim report. With a working title of “The Healing Place”, this non-coercive service will be underpinned by human rights and consumer leadership. 

Mind Australia is partnering with consumer leaders to develop the values and principles of a consumer-led residential service. Invitations to attend a workshop are open to people with lived experience of mental ill health and distress who identify as consumer leaders.

Ways to participate:

1. Online workshop (via Zoom) on Friday 2 June, 1:00pm – 3:00pm.

To participate, you will need a quiet, private space, a device with camera and sufficient data. We will prioritise access to the online workshop for people in rural or regional areas, and those who are unable to attend an in-person event.

2. In person on Thursday 15 June, 10:00am – 12:30pm.

Held at Bargoonga Nganjin (Fitzroy North Library) Community Room, Level 2, 182-186 St Georges Road, Fitzroy North VIC 3068.

Fully accessible venue, assistive listening facilities. Morning tea provided.


Participants will be paid $224 (in line with VMIAC’s half day collaborate rate) for attending one workshop.

Please note, places are limited. If you are interested, please complete the online Expression of Interest (EOI) Form by 5pm Monday 22 May 2023.

Mind Australia will review the EOIs and invite attendance from people with a diverse range of lived and living experiences, skills and backgrounds. Participants will be notified of outcomes by 5pm Friday 26 May 2023.

  1. Hi
    In the Vmiac newsletter of Friday the 19th of May we are told that we have till Thursday the 25th of May to complete our EOF. That makes more sense as it gives us more than just two days to apply. Please clarify the date for me.
