The Far West Local Health District’s Mental Health Drug and Alcohol Consumer and Carer Action Group (CCAG) are seeking expressions of interest from consumers and carers using the Mental Health Drug and Alcohol services who wish to contribute to the planning of, and input on, service delivery and improvement.
Chelsea Edwards, Manager of Consumer and Carer Engagement for Mental Health Drug and Alcohol FWLHD said: “At the beginning of 2020, the CCAG committee will be hosting an open invitation to people interested in using their experiences and voice to influence positive planning and service outcomes for our consumers.
“An advertisement for the information session will be distributed in December,” Mrs Edwards said.
“We would really love to welcome new people and experiences to the group and the information session next year is a really great opportunity for people to meet and get to understand what CCAG does and why.”
