One Door Consumer Consultative Committee – Expressions of Interest

One Door Mental Health values the participation of those with a lived experience of mental illness in the planning and delivery of our services. As you may know, part of this is engaging our consumers to act as consultants as part of our Consumer Consultative Committee (CCC). The CCC was established in 2008 to provide a further avenue for the consumer voice to be heard. It also ensures that the One Door is operating within consumer friendly policies and procedures. We are currently seeking members (particularly from rural and regional areas) to participate in the Committee either in person or via teleconference. Meetings are held at least 4 times annually at our Gladesville office. We value your contribution, so members receive an Honorarium payment for each engagement, currently set at $70.

Visitors from Singapore Institute of Mental Health

On Thursday March 21st, our Engagement Officer, Bridget, met with four representatives from the Institute of Mental Health, Singapore, Dr Mok Yee Ming, Chermain Wong, Jessica Wong, and Faith Wong, to discuss recovery colleges. The Institute of Mental Health in Singapore is beginning the process of starting a recovery college for their inpatients and community mental health patients, and so the representatives travelled all the way to Australia to do some research on how a recovery college operates. Bridget discussed the challenges and rewards that are involved in working in a recovery college, and gave them some useful contacts to continue their research.
