What We Do
This qualification reflects the role of workers who provide self-directed recovery oriented support for people affected by mental illness and psychiatric disability. This program focuses on working with those with a lived experience of mental illness and distress, and with the many services that can be involved in their journey of recovery. This program has been designed to assist people who desire to work or volunteer within the community mental health sector. You’ll learn about working within the recovery framework, communication skills, cultural diversity, responding to risk and behaviours and assessment while supporting recovery. Upon completion of this program you will be qualified to work in residential programs, outreach programs and peer support programs
