Abstract: This symposia paper explores RichmondPRA’s experience in developing the Peer Workforce and, specifically, a Peer Operated Service, totally staffed and operated by Peers. RichmondPRA will share its successes and the challenges it has faced along this journey including building positive relationships with partners. It also provides an opportunity to see how, as a sector we can promote Peer Work as an effective and valued part of mental health service delivery in Australia.
