LELAN and UniSA’s Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Research Group (MHSPRG) created this Community of Practice as an important component of their Activating Lived Experience Leadership (ALEL) Project.


About the Lived Experience Leadership and Change CoP:

The Lived Experience Leadership and Change CoP provides a ‘safe space’ to encourage discussion, information exchange and capacity building on lived experience leadership and change in South Australia.

The CoP started meeting in February 2020 and continues to meet every six weeks via Zoom on a Wednesday morning. Any person with lived experience of mental distress, social issues or injustice, allies and people with professional interest in this topic are invited to attend. We do ask that you pre-register your interest by emailing info@lelan.org.au .


What a Community of Practice (CoP) is:

A Community of Practice fosters shared learning, knowledge creation and collaboration about issues that matter to the people that attend. They are relational and they are conversational. Members of the community consider new ideas and discuss possibilities on new ways of working and responding. They may share or develop resources, tools or guides, or generate co-production in key areas of interest.

Communities of Practice are groups of people who share a concern (domain) or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better (practice) as they interact regularly (community) [Quote by Etienne Wenger]
