What You Will Be Doing

The Mornington Adult Community Mental Health and Intensive Treatment Teams provide community care for people aged 26-64 years who experience mental health challenges or distress and require holistic treatment and wellbeing supports.

The Consumer Peer Worker role has been developed specifically for people with a personal experience of mental health challenges and recovery to provide holistic support to people accessing community mental health services and supports. Peer Workers are empathetic listeners who promote hope, choice and connection in their relationships with others.

• Recognition and understanding of own experiences and ability to use this to support consumers
• Ability to use lived/living experience expertise to support the work of the multi-disciplinary team and ensure practice is sensitive to the needs of consumers, families and carers
• Commitment to working collaboratively with relevant services providers and community groups
