Peer Support Group

Thursday 1 November 2018

Start: 10:30
Finish: 12:30

One Place East facilitates a Peer Support Group every Thursday from 10.30am to 12.30pm at 98-100 Ilford Lane, Ilford, IG1 2LD

The Peer Support Group is based around hope, support, encouragement and sharing experiences amongst people with lived experience of mental health issues.Peer support means people supporting each other on an equal basis, to offer something based on shared experiences. It has a long and honourable history in mental health - people with mental health problems and service users have always provided invaluable support to each other, both informally and through self-help and activist groups. It can happen in all sorts of places, informally and formally, in one-to-one settings and in groups.

Peer support offers many benefits, for example: shared identity and acceptance, increased self-confidence, the value of helping others, developing and sharing skills, improved mental health, emotional resilience and wellbeing, information and signposting, challenging stigma and discrimination
