Examining the Role of Mental Health Peer Support in Emergency Departments
New research suggests that people in mental distress seeking help at an Emergency Department would benefit from access to peer-support workers who understand their experience.
The report comes from a research project funded through the Melbourne Social Equity Institute's 2018 Seed Funding Round.
In total, around 50 people participated directly in this project. The research team was comprised of 12 investigators, of which half identified as having lived experience.
