Mental Health Peer Workforce Literature Scan
Health Workforce Australia

The aim of this paper is to draw out issues relating to the mental health peer workforce from the recent academic and grey literature. It is intended to be a scan rather than a complete literature review, and to ensure that the Mental Health Peer Workforce (MHPW) project is informed by the evidence currently available. This paper draws on national and international literature reviews and studies undertaken by others (including reviews undertaken by Repper & Carter (2011); the Cochrane Collaboration (Pitt et al 2013); and the New South Wales (NSW) Consumer Advisory Group (CAG) (2010).

Issues for consideration include definitions; identification of the benefits of utilising peer workers in mental health services; and issues relating to the employment of peer workers. The majority of the literature referenced is from the United States of America (USA) and United Kingdom (UK), where the peer workforce is further developed than in Australia. The literature generally has a greater focus on consumer peer workforce than carer peer workforce.
