« « « « « « « « « « « « BENEFITS OF PEER SUPPORT
As a Peer Leader you will have the chance to support others and lead your own group with professional support and training for your own personal development. You will have the opportunity to make a difference and help change lives. We have found Peer Leaders report an increase in self esteem, confidence, positive feelings and an increase in their abilities to cope with mental health problems.

If you're inspired to support others by running a group, the next step is to read these Considerations. These will help you decide if your ready for this programme. If you do not feel ready, we have other groups that can help you prepare for the Peer Leader role.
If you would like to talk to someone about this further, you can contact us on 020 7510 1081 open 9.30-5pm
