Abstract: Supervision is a process employed by most of the people-helping professions to provide ongoing teaching and support for practitioners and to safeguard clients. This paper presents the results from a qualitative enquiry into the meaning that supervision holds for people who are employed as mental health support workers (MHSW) and some subsequent thoughts as to what is useful to consider when providing supervision for these workers.
