“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.
- Mental Health Services of the Capital Region
- Copenhagen Municipality
- Helsinore Municipality
- Rudersdal Municipality
- Psykiatriforeningernes Fællesråd in the Capital Region
- Det Sociale Netværk (The Social Network)
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
