Peer Support Worker Project Group
An opportunity to be a part of this group
Closing date Monday 8th September
Please see the details below regarding an opportunity for someone with lived experience to be part of this project group.
"The Peer Support Worker project group in Devon Partnership Trust is starting to look at the practicalities of employing peer support workers in clinical teams. The idea is that people with lived experience of mental health difficulties would join the team as a clinical mental health worker. They would draw on their personal experience to give support and practical assistance to people using the service, helping them to regain control over their lives and promote their recovery.

Devon’s NHS and local authorities
seek people’s views and ideas
on mental health strategy for the future
Doctors and healthcare professionals in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay want to find out the views of local people on how the county’s mental health strategy could look in the future.
The NHS and local authorities have launched a draft commissioning strategy for adult mental health services and want people to say what they think about the proposals.
The draft strategy, which is for 2014-2017, has been developed in partnership with people who use mental health services and carers.
Five events were run in June and July 2014 where people receiving services and organisations providing services met those responsible for commissioning, or buying, mental health services on behalf of the population.
We have 10 guests online
