Peer Support Workers, who bring their own lived experience of mental health problems and recovery to their practice, were a key part of the EMPOWER intervention. This short film explains why.
Members of the EMPOWER team along with other colleagues were delighted to welcome Nev Jones to the Mental Health Research Facility last week.
Jayne here, one of the peer workers on the EMPOWER study. I have lived experience of psychosis and I am delighted to be working in this role. I am very much looking forward to meeting participants in the study and sharing experiences of using the App. I started using the App just over a month ago and I thought I’d write this blog sharing how I’ve found it.
My name's Davie and I've just started work as a Mental Health Peer Support Worker with the EMPOWER Study.
