Webinar: Project Management in Lived Experience roles

July 2 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


“Most of us stumble into project management and realise we’re doing it when our project is already underway.” – Liz Asser, Inservice Training Officer, Lived Experience Australia

More and more people with lived experience are stepping into and leading projects in the mental health space. While providing a fantastic opportunity to draw upon their lived experience to make a difference in mental health, these project environments can sometimes feel chaotic and unclear. A lack of structure and uncertainty can trigger threat responses, impact wellbeing and hinder people’s ability to deliver much-needed initiatives.


The discipline of project management can bring order and clarity to project environments, supporting lived experience workers to feel safe to draw upon their lived experience, achieve their objectives, and maintain their wellbeing. In this webinar we will share how lived experience workers can start to build their own project management toolkit through a lived experience approach to project management.


We will explore the key elements that we need to get right when kicking off and then executing a project. Upfront it’s all about shared purpose, robust planning, defined scope and clear roles and responsibilities. During execution it’s all about collaboration, tracking progress, course correction, and looking out for each other. With people at the heart of the project and wellbeing the number one priority.


Join us to learn the tricks of the (project management) trade and feel more confident to take on your next lived experience project.


Webinar duration: Approx. 45 minutes + Q&A
