Event description

Description

This course is for people who have a lived experience of recovery from trauma, grief or loss, or mental distress, experienced either directly or as part of their role as a carer or worker. Industries that use peer support include healthcare, community mental health, emergency services, military and police. Sharing a lived experience does not mean we’ve experienced the same life events: it means we’ve experienced the effects of mental distress, acknowledged that we’re on a journey of recovery and are building resilience in our own lives. Peer support is about using our experience as a basis to build safe spaces, create empathic relationships and support others as equals.

This course will equip individuals with the basic skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviours to undertake peer support work. The course is designed to create a safe space for people to share their lived experience and recovery, and to explore and develop personally within this unique learning space. The course is facilitated by qualified peer practitioners with a lived experience who are currently working in the field.
