Peer Support


A mutually beneficial relationship between people with similar histories that empowers individuals to consider options, set goals and make changes that enhance their lives. 

Our Peer Supporters have experienced their own mental health challenges and are living examples of courage and recovery.

We have 8 Peer Support staff (& additional Family Peer support staff). All bring a variety of experiences to their role, along with understanding, compassion and dignity. All inspire hope.
