Peer-support in the Capital Region” ran from 2015-2018 as  a project funded by the Danish goverment and managed by The National Board of Social Services. The aim of the project was to implement and evaluate peer-support workers in the regional mental health services and community services.

The project was organized as a partnership between the regional mental health care in the Capital Region, three municipalities in the region, a consumer and carer organization and an NGO.

The project ended with a nation-wide evaluation by the The National Board of Social Services. This project independently produced a range of evaluations focused on:

  • Implementation of peer-support, and as a part of this training of peer-support workers and staff
  • Outcomes for revievers and givers of peer-support
  • Outcomes for organisations, collegues i.e.
  • Differences and overlaps between payed and volounteer peer-support
  • Establishing and benefitting from cross-sector partnerships
