The Guidelines contribute to the ongoing development of the Lived Experience Workforce in Australia by providing detailed guidance on the knowledge and supports required to grow the workforce in a sustainable and effective manner. To achieve this, comprehensive information is provided, including high-level policy considerations, practical actions and additional resources. The information in the Guidelines will help foster greater consistency in working conditions for Lived Experience roles across Australia, as well as adding to the understanding, acceptance and perceived value of Lived Experience roles across the mental health and suicide prevention workforce. The Guidelines include specific sections and information for: funders/policy makers, organisations/employers and Lived Experience workers, across all sectors and stages of Lived Experience workforce development. The Guidelines focus on the Lived Experience Workforce as a paid profession, encompassing a broad range of Lived Experience roles across many positions and settings, including both consumer and carer workers. The Guidelines further acknowledge the need for the Lived Experience workforce to be reflective of our diverse communities. Ultimately the Guidelines are intended to strengthen understanding and collaboration across the mental health sector and contribute to more effective services and better outcomes for people accessing services.
