The Adult Consumer Advisor's role is part of the service leadership advising management and they do not provide individual advocacy or support.
The Consumer Advisors ensure that mental health consumers’ views are heard by policy makers, service providers and the community, through promoting consumer participation in relevant policy making and service development decisions, implementation and evaluation.
The advisor works to bridge the gap between the grassroots personal knowledge of consumers and the knowledge of policy makers and service providers.
