Mental Health Lived Experience Peak Queensland
There is power in our truth-telling
Who are we?
What do we do?
We are here to advocate for and influence systemic change that is guided by our lived experience expertise, with a vision of a mental health system every Queenslander deserves. We embody the principles of equity, access, cultural-safety, and Human Rights, in all our actions, advice, and advocacy.
For all of us, especially those often unseen and unheard. We support those who have been silenced to stand up and speak out through empowerment, support, and connection.
We are here for more than just talk
Human Rights Week
Stand in solidarity for universally experienced Human Rights.
To acknowledge this year’s Queensland Human Rights Week, we invite those with a lived experience of mental ill-health or distress, to ask how their human rights have been impacted via an online survey.
We want to hear about how human rights-based approaches have respected, protected, and promoted people’s dignity, as well as times when people’s inalienable rights to mental health have been breached. Your experiences may have been in the mental health system, but also in justice, health, or other social sectors.
