lived experience speakers bureausharing lived experiences to raise awareness, educate and activate
A speakers bureau is currently being set up at our voice. The speakers bureau is a way for people to share their lived experience of mental health issues, recovery and living well despite with a broader audience.
We aim to share our experiences, raise awareness, educate, challenge stigma, provide hope, open the conversation, initiate dialogue and activate change
Speakers will be supported through all stages of their speaking journey to ensure they look after themselves in making sense of their experiences, contextualising their talk for the particular audience and their sharing.
Any group or organisation wishing to hear from people with lived experience of mental health issues may seek a speaker.
Presenters may be requested for:
-> panel discussions
-> training workshops / seminars
-> group workshops
-> staff training;
-> media work.
