Relative/Family Peer Working

Relative Peer Support offers families/friends of those with mental health challenges an opportunity to meet with a Relative Support Worker who has lived experience of supporting a loved one with mental health difficulties.

Relative peer support is recovery orientated with the focus on inspiring hope for the future and supporting family members on the recovery journey. Relatives are offered on-going emotional support, collaborative life skills work, links to community services in order to build resilience and assist the family to cope more positively with the challenges they are facing.
Bealach Nua offers this service to relatives who have a loved one linked to Mayo Mental Health Services. This service is jointly managed by Shine in partnership with Mayo Mental health Services.

Contact details for this service are as follows:
