Peer Participation in Mental Health
- Mon 4 Jul 2016
Launched in January 2017, the Peer Participation Project aims to support the active involvement of people with a lived or living experience of mental illness in the planning, operation and evaluation of mental health services in the Brisbane North region. Peer participation can occur at a range of levels including the individual, service, organisational and regional level. Brisbane North PiR now hosts a monthly Peer Participation in Mental Health Network meeting held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, has identified and offered training opportunities through a scholarship program and now has a mailing list of over 150 people with a lived experience interested in participating more in mental health services. As a part of the project a new peer participation section has been added to My Mental Health website and includes information on:
- what is peer participation?
- about the project
- consumer/carer participation oppportunities
- links to relevant peer training
- peer workforce resources
- research on peer work and
- useful links to peer related tools and resources.
Check out the new section and/or for further information please contact Paula Arro - Peer Participation Project Coordinator on email@example.com or (07) 3490 3437.
