Developing Peer Support Workers: Training Manual by Ron Coleman, William Ellis, Karen Taylor

The world of mental health practice has been changed forever by the introduction of peer workers into both the state and the NGO sector. This Practice Guide is a exploration of this new worker by three critical Thinkers.
Ron Coleman spent 13 years of his life as a service user in the UK mental health system spending 7.5 years of his life as an inpatient in various hospitals in London and Greater Manchester. His experience of hospital and his journey out of Psychiatry is now reflected in everything he does and you will find some of that experience within the pages of this book.
William Ellis has had many roles in his life and has worked in many differing roles within the field of mental health. More importantly William has always been open about the struggles he has gone through and he brings these insights.
Karen Taylor spent 17 years as a psychiatric nurse before leaving to work full time with Ron Coleman as a director of Working to Recovery Ltd. This background made Karen an Ideal Author alongside Ron and William
It is this three way combination that brings to the market a book that can be seen as different, full of Learning and hope for the future.
