The Lived Experience Awards are back and this year presented by the Mental Health Coalition of SA (MHCSA) Lived Experience Workforce Program (LEWP).
LEWP is committed to building and supporting a professional, highly skilled and valued Lived Experience Workforce in the SA non-Government mental health sector. As a major program of the MHCSA, LEWP is proud to support the awards and honour the Lived Experience Workers who make a significant contribution in their workplace and community.
Is that you or your organisation?
The Lived Experience Awards aim to:
- Publicly recognise and celebrate the outstanding or extraordinary achievements of people in designated lived experience roles
- Publicly recognise and celebrate the achievements of organisations which have not only embraced the Lived Experience Workforce but demonstrate commitment to supporting and growing it.
Do you know a Lived Experience Worker who deserves a 2020 Lived Experience Award?
Do you know an organisation who should be recognised for how it supports and develops its Lived Experience Workforce?
The MHCSA Lived Experience Awards are only open to organisations who are members of the MHCSA. Individuals may apply if you work within a member organisation in a paid, designated lived experience role (using your personal lived experience expertise or as a carer/family/supporter).
Entries are now open and close 5pm Monday 14 September, 2020.
Judging will take place between September 15-25 by a panel that includes LEWP staff and independent Lived Experience Workforce representatives.
Nominees will be announced on Monday 28 September with the winners awarded at the Festival of Now 2020 (date tbc).
