One-to-one peer support

Regular support from a peer volunteer aims to helps people feel connected and empowered by developing techniques to self-manage their mental health and wellbeing. 

Service Description

This service is for people aged 18 and over who are feeling low, stressed, anxious or depressed and want to improve their mental health and wellbeing. 

People will regularly meet with their peer supporter, and together explore changes they would like to make.  Support is available for up to six months.  Health in Mind peer support volunteers all have their own experiences of mental health recovery and have completed training to use their experiences to support others.  Together with their peer support volunteer, people accessing the service explore tools and techniques to self-manage their mental health and wellbeing, making steps towards where they want to be.
