Ballarat Health Services – Join the Conversation

Ballarat Health Services Mental Health Services (BHS MHS) needs your help! Consumers are invited to join one of three Advisory groups to contribute to improving mental health services across the Grampians region.

Consumers are encouraged to bring along their expertise and passion to one of three information sessions to be held in Ballarat, Horsham and Ararat. The sessions will provide details on how to become part of the Family Advisory Council or the Youth Advisory Group. Consumer feedback will also be sought on different models proposed for the Consumer Advisory Committee.

The BHS MHS Consumer Advisory Committee is a group of members that works together to ensure that consumers, families and carers views are recognised and valued, and are reflected in service delivery and policy development within BHS MHS.

The role of the Committee and Groups is to increase community, consumer and carer
involvement within BHS MHS. The group of members also have an important role in providing advice and recommendations, as well as consumer and carer representation. The group brings a community perspective to the development of priority areas and key issues to strengthen participation at all levels of planning and delivery.
