Peter Farrugia

Peter is an experienced trainer with a background in facilitation for both TAFE and the mental health sector (including ‘CANSAS Conversation’ for RichmondPRA). Added to this is Peter’s personal lived experience which underpins his understanding and awareness of mental health issues and his work as a trainer of the Certificate IV in Mental Health Peer Work.

Peter has worked as a representative of the peer sector at local, state and national levels and is currently Peer Workforce Manager at RichmondPRA. His other qualifications include the Certificate IV in Mental Health (non-clinical) and the Advanced Diploma Community Sector Management.

Peter passionately believes in supporting the growth and development of the peer workforce, which will provide opportunities for people with lived experience to support others with mental health conditions, and to engage with them across a broad recovery-based framework.
