Mental Health: MHU: Consumer and carer peer work in mental health

Guide to library resources for staff of St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne with an interest in mental health, psychiatry and psychology

Peer work

Welcome to a special issue of Mental Health Update about consumer and carer peer work in mental health. This updates a resource first created in April 2016 with the assistance of Matthew Scott and Melissa Petrakis, and I thank them for the initial inspiration. I would also like to thank Deb Carlon for her help in updating the content, including websites I never knew existed :)

Full text access: Most of these resources are freely accessible, but articles marked with an asterisk* require an SVHM login for offsite access. Readers from other organisations are welcome, but please note that some links will not work for you, and this library can only supply subscription based full text resources to SVHM staff and students.  Endnote:  SVHM staff may request an Endnote library of these citations.   

Library contact: helen.wilding@svha.org.au to subscribe to updates, request an Endnote library or ask about library services.
