Mental Health Lived Experience Register
The purpose of the Mental Health Lived Experience Register (the Register) is to provide a mechanism for people living with lived experience [of mental health issues] to provide feedback, observations, ideas and recommendations for improving Mental Health Services in South Australia. It is open to both ‘consumers’ and ‘carers’.
South Australian Mental Health Commission
The South Australian Mental Health Commission is leading the development of our State’s Mental Health Strategic Plan and is seeking input from South Australians. … The SA Mental Health Commission places people with lived experience of mental illness, their families, loved ones and carers are central to all our work.
We would like your feedback on:
-> The existing mental health system; and
-> Ways in which South Australians can strengthen their mental wellbeing.

Health Consumers Alliance of SA (HCA)
A strong and effective voice for the promotion and protection of health consumer wellbeing and rights, HCA promotes health equity and provides systemic advocacy to inform, shape and sustain consumer centred care. We believe that consumer engagement results in better planning and policy-making and hence better health outcomes and community wellbeing.
As a peak body, HCA seeks to promote and strengthen the consumer voice and promote consumer leadership. An important role of HCA is promoting the policy and practice of consumer engagement across the SA health care sector, including public, private and non-government service providers.
