What is Peer Support?
Peer support is when people use their own experiences to help each other.
It can support you if you want to:
- feel less isolated
- increase your confidence
- get or give support and talk to others who understand your mental health problems through a shared experience
- be more knowledgeable about your mental health
Peer Support offers both peer-led and peer-facilitated activities, which focus on your strengths, hopes and ambitions and can help you develop skills and strategies to manage and maintain your emotional and physical wellbeing.
