 Graduates set to change the future of mental health services

25 North Coast students that have taken part in the innovative Lived Experience Project are set to graduate with a Certificate IV in Community Services and Mental Health in an inspiring ceremony scheduled to be held on Thursday 16th August 2012 at the Byron Bay Community Centre. All students have a lived experience of mental illnesses such as Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Eating Disorder and all of them have completed the long hard journey of re-entering education and completing work experience placements to ensure they are able to make the transition into employment as peer workers in mental health and community services. For some of the students it has been more than 23 years since they have been in a classroom and for others it has been more than 20 years since they had a job. The Lived Experience Project prioritises the social inclusion of people with mental illness and intends to celebrate the student’s achievements in study and work with a keynote address by mental health academic and visionary for change – Anthony Stratford from MIND Australia.
