Peer Support Work

Peer support working is also a feature of mental health services in our region.

It involves the employment of individuals with ‘lived experience’ who have been trained and employed by the HSE to offer and receive help based on shared understanding, respect and mutual empowerment. Peer support workers share experiential knowledge and use coaching and communication skills to encourage others with personal recovery and to provide a sense of belonging through recovery promoting relationships. Peer support worker also often co produce and co deliver in the Recovery College.
