Certificate IV in Mental Health Peer Work (CHC43515) is a national qualification that makes up one level of the National Community Services and Health Training System. This national system has been developed by the combined efforts of government and non-government agencies, union representatives and professional bodies as well as workplace representatives on a national project team. It provides training options for a career path for employees in a range of sectors in Community Services and Health.
This specialist, nationally recognised course has been developed by VICSERV and is specifically designed for workers who have lived experience as either a consumer or carer, and who work in mental health services in roles that support, mentor or advocate for consumers or carers. To enrol in the program the participants need to be currently working in the sector (at least one full day per week) in a full time, part time or casual capacity.
Partners in Recovery are excited to announce that we will be offering this course beginning in March 2016. Additional information can be found here.
