What is peer support?

Simply put, peer support is a way of providing emotional and wellbeing assistance where both the facilitator and participant are equals. Peer support allows people to connect through lived experiences, creating a safe space where you are able to talk openly and honestly, knowing the person you are speaking to really understands.

Peer support is supported by research as an effective pre-clinical mental health intervention.​ Benefits of peer support include improved social connectedness, increased resilience, improved workplace culture, and a reduction of burnout and compassion fatigue. 

How does it work?

You sign up, and we match you with a peer support volunteer from a similar field and level of training. Once linked in, you can catch up whenever suits you both, as often as you need, online or in person.

Our fantastic volunteers are experienced healthcare professionals with dedicated mental health training. Both one-on-one and group peer support are available.
