The Lived Experience Workforce: What’s Happening?

Te Pou facilitated the first in a series of webinars dedicated to the lived experience workforce. The webinar series will cover various topics and updates related to the mental health and addiction consumer, peer support and lived experience workforce with dates and topics announced in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned.

For the first webinar we focused on the many exciting updates happening with this workforce, including time to get to know Martin Burke, the new Programme Director Lived Experience at the Ministry of Health MHA Directorate; updates on the soon to be released Competencies for the consumer, peer support and lived experience workforce; progress on the Consumer, Peer Support and Lived Experience Workforce Development Strategy Action Plan and much more. Please see the agenda for more information.
