Peer Support groups offer a safe space for people to share their own mental health experience and recovery journey and feel heard and supported by others. The groups will be led by a Peer Support Worker with lived experience of mental health and built-on shared personal experience and empathy with a focus on working towards wellbeing and recovery. The groups will operate in Bedford and across Central Bedfordshire. Peer Mentoring is a goal orientated one-to-one service. People will work with one of our trained mentors _ all of whom have a lived experience of mental health challenges _ to plan and carry out steps towards achieving goals to enhance their wellbeing or address a particular challenge they are facing such as improving social confidence, using public transport, accessing education, voluntary work, and employment.
