Peer Workers are the most under-utilised, valuable resource available to rural and remote mental health services and communities. Evidence has confirmed the efficacy of peer work, yet their historically slow uptake has robbed communities and individuals of the opportunity to be supported by staff who can provide an added layer of assistance as part of a multidisciplinary team or beneficial alternative to conventional treatments.
This chapter seeks to inspire confidence in all stakeholders involved in rural and remote communities to engage with the Peer Workforce. It discusses the evidence, value, and efficacy of peer work in rural and remote mental health services and communities.
