Launch of the 2021 Competencies for the mental health and addiction service user, consumer and peer workforce

This webinar will celebrate the launch of our refreshed competencies for the mental health and addiction service user, consumer and peer workforce. Tune in to hear sector leaders talking about the refreshed competencies, why they are important, what has changed and how they will be using them followed by a question time. All are welcome to join this event!

In 2014, the competencies were created and launched to help shape the development of this workforce in mental health and addiction services. In 2021 they have been revised and refreshed following robust consultation from consumer, peer support and lived experience workers, managers and leaders from the sector. The refreshed resource outlines the competencies necessary for the workforce at three levels: essential, enhanced and leader. They include the values that are important to the workforce, baseline competencies for the whole of the workforce and specific competencies for peer support workers and consumer advisors

The competencies can be used to inform all aspects of work including training, recruitment, performance management, self-assessment, service specifications, auditing and more.
