The aim of the Inner City (IC) SUPER Group is to provide opportunities for members to be involved in events across the Inner City:
SUPER = Service, Users, Participating,
Educating & Researching / Background
The So You Want to Change the World 2 day forum has been developed because of the involvement between the Inner City SUPER Group and the Kansas Consumer Advisory Council for Adult Mental Health Inc.
Members have travelled to the Recovery Conference during the past 2 years and witnessed the growth of consumer run organisations and the programs that they are creating for the consumers in Kansas.
An opportunity to showcase one of those programs with support from the Kansas University to evaluate how this program is accepted in NSW will enable members of the SUPER group to gain new skills and influence how mental health services are delivered across the Inner City.
The draft outcomes for the 2 day forum are:
  1. Raise profile of the SUPER Group
  2. Educate workers about Trauma Informed Care (TIC) from a Lived Experience perspective
  3. Expand the knowledge base about TIC
  4. Develop partnership with others interested in TIC
