Abstract or Summary

As with all fledgling professions the role of the Community-based Mental Health Support Work is forging its own identity in New Zealand’s health care sector, with support workers struggling to fashion their own scope of practice. Through the uses of qualitative research methods support workers have been provided with the opportunity to share their perception of their role in community mental health and residential support services.
