In cooperation with the Georgian organization Partnership for equal rights (PER), we started a project that will enable the training of 14 peer workers, including a short internship in local community services and psychiatric hospitals. Also, a standard will be created to anchor and describe the role of peer worker in the mental health care system, and methodological support will be provided to care providers and other professionals on how to successfully integrate peer workers into teams.
An online Opening meeting was held in early December, attended by representatives of Georgian community services, psychiatric hospitals, people with personal experience of mental issue and Recovery, the Ministry of Health of Georgia, the Embassy of Georgia, and the United Nations Development Program.
The Project „Support of peer work in Georgia“ is implemented through the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) with the financial support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.
