You’re keen to help, but you probably want to know what it might involve
How you can get involved
As a parent, partner, child or carer living first-hand with mental illness in your life, you are well qualified to participate in the development of our materials that lead to better mental health outcomes for children of parents with a mental illness.
There are several ways you can get involved. Our Lived Experience Coordinator will work with you to match your skills to the things that fit with your availability, interests and experience.

Guidance and advisory groups
Coproduction of information and resources
Focus groups for children and young people
Workforce development projects
Educate and train workers
Media representation (spokespeople)
Contribute to newsletters and news items
