Preparing consumers and service providers for consumer participation

APSU has been successfully running the Peer Helper Training since 2005. The Peer Helper Training is designed for people who have lived experience of problematic substance use with or without mental health issues. It has been described as a snapshot of the Certificate IV in AOD and, as such, it enables people who have had a disrupted education to test the waters, build their self-esteem, skill and knowledge level. Indeed, many people who have been through the Peer Helper Training have then undertaken further education or other socially engaging activities.
