Community Engagement Education Package (CEEP) Project: Co-Design Working Group

Community Engagement Education Package Project
Co-Design Working Group – Get Involved!

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has funded the Mental Health Coordinating Council (MHCC) to co-design a Community Education Engagement Package (CEEP) to assist community workers, volunteers and peers to better support people living with a psychosocial disability or mental health condition. These are people who are ineligible for, or do not want to have, a funded National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan.

The strong community focus of the project is that “people with disability participate in and benefit from the same community activities as everyone else”.

What is Co-Design?

Co-design provides an opportunity for people who have a lived experience to contribute in a respectful, safe and supported environment.
MHCC sees co-design as not about tokenistic consultation, but about engaging people with lived experience in all aspects of the project.

How Can I get Involved?

We invite people with lived experience and their supporters – both paid and family/friends – to contribute to four Co-Design Working Groups in each of the two sites where the CEEP will be trialled, Western NSW/Dubbo and Central Eastern Sydney.

Participants can chose to attend alone or with a supporter. MHCC asks supporters to talk with participants before the Co-design Working Group and help them to think about their views on the issues that we will discuss on the day (see more information).

Each session will run for four hours and MHCC will provide lunch or afternoon tea. MHCC will hold the first of four Co-design Working Groups in:

We want to engage 8 – 10 people for each group. MHCC will provide you with a $50 voucher for your participation.

To get involved or for further information about the project or Co-design Group, please contact:
Rebecca Lewis rebecca.l@mhcc.org.au or 02 9555 8388 ext 113
