Follow-up Evaluation of the Peer-Led Education Pilot in Darwin

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This report presents evaluation findings from Stage 3 and Extension to Stage 3 (hereafter Stage 3) of the Darwin Peer-Led Education Pilot (PLEP). The PLEP was an innovative project, and its staged delivery supported the cumulative development of knowledge and skill by people with lived experience of mental health and related challenges in the Darwin region. Stage 3 of the PLEP included the delivery of My Recovery programs by upskilled local Facilitators, the codesign of a new peer-led recovery program and the delivery of non-accredited Peer Work Skills Training to former Program Participants. The overarching aims of the Stage 3 evaluation were to (1) describe the appropriateness and effectiveness of the My Recovery program, which was further contextualised throughout the PLEP by upskilled local Facilitators, and (2) build on the existing Stage 1 and 2 evidence-base. The evaluation also assessed the challenges, opportunities, key learnings, and issues experienced by the upskilled local Facilitators. Finally, the evaluation report includes detailed indications that support the transition of the pilot project and is intended to complement the Transition Plan prepared separately by the evaluation team
