Welcome to the Consumer and Family Carer Perspective Supervision Database.
This database is primarily designed to assist consumer lived experience workers or family/carer lived experience workers to find a suitable discipline specific supervisor. Workers from other disciplines (e.g social work, nursing, psychiatry) can also use this database to find a suitable Lived Experience Supervisor to assist them to enhance their practice.
Supervisors listed in the database have asserted that they meet the minimum criteria for inclusion in the database, criteria that were developed through wide consultation, specifically:
They have at least 2 years' experience in a consumer or family/carer designated role
They accept the underlying principles of the Consumer Perspective Supervision Framework or Family/Carer Lived Experience Workforce Values (Family/Carer Perspective Supervision Framework under development)
They have attended supervision training or can demonstrate equivalent consumer or family/carer perspective experience and expertise
The inclusion of a supervisor in the database is not an endorsement of that supervisor by CMHL. Rather, the information contained in the database can be used by workers seeking supervision to narrow their search for and select a supervisor. Workers seeking supervision are encouraged to contact potential supervisors directly for any further information or clarification needed in their search for a compatible/suitable supervisor.

This database should only be used by people who are seeking a supervisor. Using this database for other purposes (e.g. marketing or advertising) is not allowed.
Below are some links to key supervision resources. Work is currently underway to develop new resources, specifically Carer Perspective Supervision resources.
A companion resource for the CPS framework. To assist trainers, supervisors, and anyone else that would like further resources related to CPS and supervision models.
The VMIAC webinar covers:
- Consumer perspective supervision values and principles
- The unique functions of consumer perspective supervision
- The benefits and outcomes of consumer perspective supervision
- Promoting consumer perspective supervision in mental health services
This video was created by Sandy Watson, inside out & associates Australia, for the Consumer Perspective Supervision Training Development Project. It informs CPS supervisors and supervisees about what to consider in regard to documentation.
