Peer workers in the mental health sector have come together for training thanks to a collaboration of organisations.
Endeavour Mental Health Recovery Clubhouse was successful in obtaining a grant from the Mental Health Commission to facilitate specific training to the mental health peer workforce on the Mid-North Coast to enhance professional development.
This Lived Experience Framework Training for Peer Worker Professional Development was established through the collaboration of Endeavour Mental Health Recovery Clubhouse, Lifeline Mid Coast and Mid North Coast Local Health District.
Endeavour Mental Health Recovery Clubhouse CEO Rob Moorehead said the training was another example of the power of organisations collaborating together for the benefit of the community.
The two-day workshop was delivered by Sandy Watson from inside out and associates australia.
The training is designed for people with lived experience to better prepare for opportunities to influence, participate and provide leadership in the context of the NSW Lived Experience Framework which aims to create substantive changes in mental health systems and services.
