The Enhanced Post Discharge Support initiative has been funded to provide peer support for consumers transitioning from mental health inpatient units back into the community.

It is expected you will contribute from a peer perspective to effective discharge planning processes to support successful discharge and reduction in readmission rates by promotion of community engagements/supports, education and support to consumers, referrals and supportive follow-up post discharge.

This position is part of a team of family/carer and consumer peer workers, where orientation and ongoing training, support, mentoring and supervision is provided by your Consumer Peer Worker Team Leader. This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in the establishment of the Expanding Post Discharge Support initiative.
