Get Involved

Become a Member

Membership of Flourish is available to Tasmanians over 18 years old who have a personal lived experience of mental ill-health. Being involved with Flourish will provide you with information about mental health issues; invitations to upcoming forums about mental health; and social activities where people with a genuine interest in mental health issues can meet and share experiences and ideas. At the Flourish AGM each year, members can meet the Board of Flourish to receive information about Flourish’s year of activities.

Member Events

Flourish provides multiple opportunities for members to socialise, collaborate, gain new skills, and share their experiences.

We hold a number of events, both recurring and unique, with members invited to attend as many events as they like.

Flourish Local Action Groups (FLAGs)

FLAGs work with their local communities, with government and on behalf of Flourish, to ensure that networks are developed within local communities, government agencies and peer organisations that will foster greater understanding of the impact of mental illness on consumers, and to advise the Flourish management and state-wide constituency on specific regional issues.

Flourish has FLAGs in the South, the North, and the North West of the state to ensure that people with a lived experience of mental ill-health can have a say on the full range of mental health issues that help and block recovery

Share Your Story

Sharing your story of your lived experience of mental ill-health can help others who may be having similar experiences, reduce stigma and give others a greater understanding of living with mental ill-health.
