PEER WORKER role for young person with lived experience of mental health issues

The compassion and understanding that you or someone you know feel/s for others in circumstances that parallel those you/they have experienced can, when you/they are ready, be the basis of a meaningful career.

A Peer Worker role is based on the idea that people who have had lived experience of mental illness and have experienced recovery, with specialised training, can support others experiencing mental health difficulties and can intentionally engender hope by role-modelling recovery in a way that others without a lived experience cannot.

And Children’s Health Queensland (CHQ) are currently looking for a YOUTH Peer Worker to fill a Temporary (until 3 July 2021) Part-Time position in the Brisbane Inner City, Brisbane – South areas.

More information about this vacancy (and working for CHQ) is here with a pdf of the job description here.
Applications close on the 5th of February.
