Description

This service is currently at capacity and not taking on new referrals. If you are interested in receiving support, please do still contact Health in Mind.

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.

The service aims to help you feel connected and empowered by developing tools and techniques to self-manage your mental health and wellbeing. You will regularly meet with your peer supporter, and together explore changes you would like to make.

Support is available for up to six months.

Health in Mind isn’t currently offering face-to-face support, but continue to offer support by phone or video call.
