RichmondPRA Policy Direction Paper: Embracing Inclusion
Employment of People with Lived Experience

The primary purpose of this paper is to provide background context, considerations and principles for implementing a workforce strategy for the employment of people with lived experience of mental health issues (from herein referred to as ‘lived experience’) and recovery in RichmondPRA.

The paper is in two parts.
Part One: “Provision of support for employment of staff with a lived experience in RichmondPRA” which applies to staff with lived experience regardless of their job role.
Part Two: “Role of Peer Workers in RichmondPRA” which covers issues pertaining specifically to RichmondPRA’s peer workforce.

This paper points out that agreement on the “philosophy” which underpins employment of those with lived experience in our workforce is pivotal as a starting point. This provides guiding principles for development of additional policies and protocols around employment of people with lived experience in a full range of roles.
