Recognising the contribution of people with lived experience, their families and support people

The contribution of people with a lived experience of mental health issues, their families and support people is at the heart of the Commission’s work. Our Paid Participation Policy provides a daily or pro-rata payment for an individual’s time when they are personally nominated or invited to give expert advice and share their experiences to inform the Commission’s work; to pay for travel and accommodation costs and to reimburse any reasonable associated out of pocket expenses.
