Carer Peer Mentor program aims to recognise and utilise lived experience and provide hope that recovery is possible. The idea of this program is to train carers who have ‘walked the walk’ to be mentors for other carers that might be at the start of their journey, or just in need of a friendly voice, practical support and a helping hand. The EDA would love to hear from QLD carers who would like to participate via coordinator@eda.org.au #connectingcarers #edaqld #recoveryispossible #carerpeermentors #recoverywarrior

This is a project that is in the process of getting up off the ground, a government grant for a short term project that may be extended if it works well.  It is not anticipated that there will be mentors available for a few months. It will only be for people in Queensland Australia.

Too bad it is not up and running yet. It will be great when it happens!
