Brook RED in partnership with National PHN Mental Health Lived Experience Engagement Network MHLEEN are delighted to bring you a one-day Lived Experience Workforce Conference. Our key hope and intention for this gathering is to create a scaffold of discussions that will allow us to connect, reflect, explore and strengthen Lived Experience practice together.
Themes: Our themes of connection and reflection come from feedback through many different communities of practice Brook RED undertook last year. Many LE workers voiced a real need to connect together again in person in a room with other lived experience humans, so a collective group can collaborate, reflect together and strengthen the workforce and the LE practice.
Focus: Due to the fact that we only have one day to gather together, there will be two key areas of focus based on what LE workers have told us they want:
Self-care and Self-development for peer practice
Co-reflection and Supervision of peer practice
There will be key lived experience leaders presenting & answering questions in a panel. There will be updates & information on Lived Experience professional development and training available in Australia as well as showcasing best practice.
There will be dynamic and interactive consultation and reflective practice. We will be talking, moving, shuffling and sharing, with lots of reflecting and up-skilling.
