Peer Support & Advocacy

Talk in a safe and confidential space with someone who gets it.

Our trained support workers are ‘peers’ – people who have also experienced mental distress and/or addiction and recovery - and who use their experiences to support others. We can also help you to resolve an issue or problem you may be having with another mental health/addictions service provider or other organisation.
