Peer Workshop Details

Calling Consumers, Family Members and Carers, Peer Workers and Service Providers

The Mental Health Commission in partnership with key stakeholders, is undertaking the Lived Experience (Peer) Workforce Project (Project).

The Project aims to guide the development of a thriving state-wide consumer, family and carer Lived Experience (Peer) workforce across the mental health (including suicide prevention) and alcohol and other drug sectors.

The outcome of the Project, including a Framework and recommendations to build capacity of the Peer Workforce, will be tailored to a WA context, ensuring the perspectives and nuances of both the mental health and alcohol and other drug sectors are reflected.

The project has so far been informed by a series of face-to-face and virtual pre-design workshops engaging with consumers, carers and family members, peer workers and service providers.

These workshops have built the foundations to deliver the 'In the Frame' All of Stakeholder Gallery style workshop to further explore and guide the development of a thriving state wide consumer, family carer Lived Experience (Peer) Workforce across the mental health (including suicide prevention) and alcohol and other drug sectors.

The Lived Experience (Peer) Workforce Project Team encourages you to register for the 'In The Frame' All of Stakeholder Workshop.
