The SA Mental Health Commission is currently processing the many Expressions of Interest we received for membership of our Community Advisory Committee (CAC).
EOIs closed on 25 Jan 2019.
We are very pleased with the response and extend a heartfelt thanks to all who sent in an EOI form.
We’ll be in touch as soon as possible.
The SA Mental Health Commission established the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) in 2017 to incorporate a wide range of expertise and skill including lived experience in all work undertaken by the Commission.
The two-year tenure of a majority of CAC members is coming to end and the Commission is seeking Expressions of Interest from South Australians from all stages of life who meet our skills/expertise and lived experience requirements.
EOIs close 5pm Friday January 25, 2019
SA Mental Health Commission Community Advisory Committee & Youth Advisory Group
The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) and the Youth Advisory Group (YAG) provide advice to the Commission on its work. CAC and YAG members have a range of experiences, including lived experience and expertise, education, forensics, drug and alcohol, veterans and disability across the community and government, non-government and private sectors.
The Community Advisory Committee and the Youth Advisory Group play an important role in ensuring broad community representation from people with a passion for mental health and wellbeing.
The SA Mental Health Strategic Plan 2017–2022 takes a whole-of-life, whole-of-community and whole-of-government approach to building, sustaining and strengthening the mental health and wellbeing of South Australians.
The Commission ensures that, central to all its work, is the lived experience of people with mental illness; their families, carers and supporters.
