Professionally engaging people with lived experience in our mental health sector has endless benefits. MHCT is proud to have received funding to develop Tasmania’s first Peer Workforce Development Strategy, a commitment made in the Rethink Tasmania’s Mental Health Plan. This two-year project has seen the development and will see the subsequent implementation of a Peer Work Force Strategy that has been created with appropriate consultation and is consistent with current literature around peer work.

In addition to the above project, MHCT co facilitates the Community of Practice (CoP) for Organisations that Engage Peer Workers. In conjunction with The Mental Health Drug and Alcohol Directorate, we bring people from the public, private and not for profit sector together, to share resources and discuss experiences relating to the engagement of peer workers. The CoP is open to any employer that directly or indirectly engages peer workers, if you would like more information about this group please contact us on 03 6224 9222.
