In 2015 Flourish had initial conversations with West Coast service providers about the lack of engagement and participation of mental health consumers in service delivery and advocacy. PIR funded Flourish to establish an Advisory Group on the West Coast in partnership with service providers, local consumers and existing Flourish Regional Advisory Group members. This group will meet monthly with access to Flourish resources and other consumer Regional Advisory Groups to find joint development opportunities. The aim is for mental health consumers on the West Coast to participate in the development of mental health services and delivery on the West Coast. Jaisen Mahne is the project officer for this exciting venture.
