CPSLE workforce guide webinar

We all know why consumer, peer support or lived experience (CPSLE) roles are needed in addiction and mental health services but how can we make it work well for everyone? What are the differences between the roles? What are the values that underpin the mahi? What needs to be taken into consideration when planning for these roles? What needs to happen so the roles are well supported, so CPSLE workers thrive?

For the answers to these questions and more come along to our webinar 10am to 11am July 26
to hear Sheridan Pooley, consumer advisor and team lead, Community Alcohol & Drug Services Waitematā and Caro Swanson lived experience lead Te Pou talk about He arataki ki ngā kaimahi mātau ā-wheako: A guide to the consumer, peer support, and lived experience workforce in mental health and addiction settings – and how it can be used to develop and support CPSLE roles.

This guide has been written for anyone involved with the CPSLE workforce in mental health and addiction services in Aotearoa New Zealand - employers, managers, colleagues, funders and planners, government agencies, organisations and services who include lived experience roles or are intending to employ or work with lived experience roles.
