Peer Support Australia (PSA) is an established Australian charity that offers peer support services to schools to assist young people to experience personal and social growth through mentoring and supporting their peers. PSA also offers school and parent consultancy and training services that supplement their peer support services. This report documents the PSA history, activities and psychosocial processes and summarises the evidence for the service benefits. The PSA programs are noted to have some of the strongest evaluation evidence of any peer support program internationally. This report makes recommendations for implementation research to further understand and apply the underpinning evidence to extend the benefits provided through PSA.
