"Global Mental Health Peer Network provided an excellent 90 minute workshop for our staff to encourage more open discussions about mental health in the workplace. Our facilitators were incredibly open about their lived experience, helping to set the tone for staff, and also contextualised the training to be relevant to our specific location, which was extremely useful. They also provided us with a list of suggested actions to help advise our future work in this area." ~ Purpose Union
"GMHPN are experts at bringing in the perspective of lived experience, and helped us to think about the impact we could have on shifting the public debate on mental health in society." ~ Unilever
"Lundbeck South Africa recently engaged Charlene Sunkel from the Global Mental Health Peer Network to share her experience of living with schizophrenia. The talk was multi-faceted with information ranging from symptoms experienced, to medication, to treatment challenges. What stood out the most was Charlene’s incredible achievements, and her passion for patient advocacy. It was a compelling and enlightening talk and went a long way in helping to destigmatize schizophrenia. Thank you Charlene for being so open and sharing your journey with us!" ~ Lundbeck South Africa
