Voicebox Project

The Voicebox Project is an innovative program provided by PIR Gold Coast and Gold Coast Primary Health Network empowering a group of Gold Coast residents to share their stories and to help improve access to health and community services.

The project consists of local Gold Coast people, with first hand experience of mental illness and/or disability, who attended a series of workshops to improve skills in advocacy, peer research, public speaking and creative documentation.

Supported participants developed skills to confidently and effectively share their experiences and to advocate on behalf of those with mental illness and/or disability.
