Consumers of Mental Health WA (CoMHWA) is the peak body by and for people with lived experience of mental health issues in Western Australia.
We listen to, understand and act upon the voices of mental health consumers. We are led by and for people with mental health lived experience.
This includes people who identify as having a past or present emotional distress or issue, people who have received a diagnosis and/or those who have accessed mental health services. Through using our lived experience we are working to end mental health stigma and to bring about a world where we all experience full respect, human rights, recovery and equal opportunities to lead a good life.
