What is the Peer Support Program?
As Peer Workers, we are people with lived experience of mental illness or caring for a person with mental illness. We are specially trained to support you.
Because we have ‘been there’, we understand what it is like. We are in a unique position to offer hope and share insights, strategies and knowledge.
We are proof that recovery is achievable and would like to offer you support with your own recovery to achieve the life you would like.
We can meet with you to talk things through and listen without judgement.
Peer Workers are not clinicians and do not provide clinical advice or information. Peer Workers are people with lived experience of mental illness and recovery.
We can support you with:
- regaining independence
- achieving goals
- being active, social, and involved in your community
- accessing resources, programs, and services
- identifying strengths and coping strategies
