The Queensland Lived Experience Workforce Network (QLEWN)

is a state-wide peak body led by, with, and for the Lived Experience workforce within the mental health, alcohol and other drugs, and suicide prevention sectors.  

Our vision is to enable Lived Experience workers to lead the ongoing development of and support for the Lived Experience workforce across Queensland.  Sector leadership, opportunities for skills development, and systems level advocacy our our focus areas.

Join Us

QLEWN is currently unfunded and we run on the passion, enthusiasm, and commitment of our volunteers, members, and supporters.  Our capacity is limited until funding is secured but we do deliver as much as we can for our workforce and you can find out what we've been up top on our News & Events page.

One of the most important things for us to do at this time is demonstrate the interest that Lived Experience workers in Queensland have in ensuring that our workforce is always by us, with us, and for us.  Joining QLEWN as a member might seem a small thing, but as a group we can ensure that the Lived Experience workforce leads on the matters that concern us; collectively we are influential.  To explore our membership options please have a look at our Membership page
