The Eastern Regional Dual Diagnosis Advisory Council recruiting Family Members
The Eastern Regional Dual Diagnosis Advisory Council is connected to the Alcohol and other drug strategy group in the Eastern Metropolitan Region. We are recruiting for family and significant others who use alcohol and other drug services.
If you are a user of Drug and Alcohol services and have been diagnosed with a dual diagnosis (ie: a drug dependency and depression or other mental health issue) The Eastern Regional Dual Diagnosis Advisory Council is requesting your help.
It has been acknowledged that people who know the system and use the services are best equipped to explain any problems there may be in the system. This is called ‘consumer participation’ and is a fundamental cornerstone of making services better equipped to assist their clients. If you have ever been to a chemist (for example) and thought to yourself that they could be doing things better when dealing with you, you now have the opportunity to give your opinions and assist in making the health system a better place for you and other consumers like you. The Southern Metropolitan Services Council will be made up of other consumers like you with the purpose being to assist the generalist health worker to better perform their services for people like you. Please contact APSU on if you are interested in joining. The commitment is for 12 months and involves free training and payment for your time. This is your opportunity to give your opinions and expert advice on how things could be improved in your area.
