The Peer Support Worker role has been developed specifically for people who have life experience of mental distress. Through sharing wisdom from their own experiences, Peer Support Workers will inspire hope and belief that recovery is possible in others. As a core member of the Enrolment Team, Peer Support Workers will assess clients over the telephone who have been referred or self referred to My Wellbeing College.
