Peer Supported Volunteering

We have for many years provided opportunities for people who have a lived experience of mental ill-health to volunteer in varying roles. These roles include peer supported befriending, supporting the development of the internet café or generally supporting clients in the Hub Centre.  

Where we have developed local and national projects, such as the Working Well with Mental Health project and Self-Directed Support for Mental Health Service Users, peer support volunteers have played a significant role in encouraging other service users to participate in all the activities, including making presentations to large public audiences and contributing in group discussions.

Action in Mind needs your support to make the places where you learn and study or the local communities and neighbourhoods where you live to become better informed about and understanding of mental health.  Together, we can make a real and positive difference to people’s lives by bringing an end to mental health stigma and discrimination by creating a pathway of positive mental wellbeing for everyone.
