Abstract


This report presents the findings of the Professionalising the NT Peer Workforce and expanding peer supports for Territorians who experience mental health challenges (NT Peer Workforce) project, which aims to (1) build the capacity of people with mental health challenges to complete vocational education and training in the community services sector; (2) raise the awareness of mental health in the workplace and build the capacity of NT employers to support existing staff who may develop a mental health issue and hire and retain people who experience mental health challenges; and (3) facilitate connections between employers and people completing the supported study and work placement program. The evaluation aims were to describe the implementation and effectiveness of this initiative.
