NEW MENTAL HEALTH RECOVERY COLLEGE
South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Mental Health is looking for
- Consumer Educators
- Consumer Research and Admin Assistants
- Carer Education Consultants
Summary of Roles
The South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Mental Health Service is seeking expressions of interest from people with personal experience of using mental health services and their family members/carers, who have skills in developing or consulting on recovery oriented training or skills in service evaluation. We aim to develop a pool of sessional workers and will be offering:
- Opportunities for consumer educators and carer education consultants to work alongside clinicians to develop, write and deliver course material for a new Recovery College to be established across the District Mental Health Service.
- Opportunities for consumer research assistants to work in collaboration with our University partner in designing and conducting the evaluation of the Recovery College.
Recovery colleges enable people to become experts in their own self care and develop skills and confidence to manage their own recovery journey. They explicitly recognise the expertise of mental health professionals and the expertise of lived experience in a process of ‘co-production’. All Recovery College courses are co-produced, co-delivered and co-received by staff, people with mental health Issues and the people who are close to them.
