GET REAL Summer Series, Episode 5 – Peer Workers, lived experience and mental health recovery

Over summer, we’re revisiting some of our favourite GET REAL episodes of 2020. It’s February 2021, and not long now until we will see the final report from the Royal Commission into Mental Health in Victoria. The interim report, published in November last year, reflects the Commission’s desire to incorporate lived experience in all aspects of the mental health system, including the delivery of mental health services. In practice, this is likely to mean many more opportunities for peer support workers; people who help others with their mental health in part through their own, lived experience of mental health challenges. In this episode, Karenza Louis-Smith talks with Grace and Donna, who work at ermha365 as peer support workers. We hope you enjoy it.For more GET REAL episodes, go to https://www.ermha.org/get-real-podcast/
