Receive Support

It's 100% free, confidential, and does not involve any medical or psychiatric treatment. Peer support facilitators all have training in peer support or mental health. You can choose from 1-on-1 peer support, or to join a peer support group with others from a similar field/level of training.

 

Support is available for anyone in the healthcare sector, including:

  • Doctors

  • Nurses

  • Allied health

  • Paramedics

  • Healthcare students

  • Non-clinical health staff

"Very grateful for the peer support provided - the collegiate discussions, sharing of experiences, etc. My work environment can be very isolating especially during the COVID pandemic, and social interactions with colleagues at my workplaces have dwindled to a minimum.

 

"Being able to connect and chat on a regular basis with peers has been a lifesaver."

Andrew, Specialist GP
