What is the Peer Worker Program?
As people with lived experience of mental illness or caring for a person with mental illness, peer workers are specially trained to support you. They have ‘been there’ and understand what it is like. They are in a unique position to offer hope and share insights, strategies and knowledge.
A peer worker can support you with:
- Regaining independence
- Achieving goals
- Being active, social, and involved in your community
- Accessing resources, programs, and services
- Identifying strengths and coping strategies.
