Peer Up Courses

Learning level 2: Intermediate  The Peer Up program focuses on a broad and practical range of mental health and peer work-related skills and concepts for professional development and upskilling.

  • already working or volunteering in the mental health/peer work sector or related field.
  • have undertaken previous mental health/peer work-related studies.
  • looking to learn new or improve upon existing skills by re-visiting core skills and concepts of peer work and mental health.
