Rise Mental Health Services latest Peer Work Course came to a successful conclusion last week with all seven participants graduating.

The course allows people with a lived mental health experience to learn skills and develop an understanding about the mental health industry so that they can start their journey into work as a Peer Support Worker.  Topics included:

  • Goal Setting
  • The Peer Worker–Client Relationship
  • Conducting a Presentation
  • Looking After Your Health

The 6 week course was facilitated by Michael and work placement student Andrea. Michael said

It was amazing to work with seven great students and see their passion for Peer Work. It was a privilege to hear their stories and help them to start their journey as a Peer Worker. I was lucky to have the support of Andrea in co-facilitating the course she was an amazing asset.
