Peer support

Peer support is provided between two or more people who have similar or shared experiences, and who recognise each other as Peers.

Peer Support can be offered professionally (Peer Support Work), or informally (such as through friendships and support groups).

Mental health peer support can bring a range of benefits, such as friendship, empowerment, acceptance, stigma reduction and shared learning and insights for recovery.

Mental health peer support workers and programs can also bring about significant improvements in service cultures, towards more recovery-centred and trauma informed approaches.
