The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of values-focused interventions for mental health support workers on their uptake of newly-acquired evidence-based recovery practices.
Main hypothesis: Staff who participate in values-focused interventions (i.e. clarification during training and 12 x 1 monthly values-based coaching) will have higher rates of transfer than those in the control (implementation) condition.
