What is Peer Support?

Peer support – helping me – helping you

For myself – BUT – not by myself

The Peer Support Network teaches you how to give and receive high-quality listening that is free from advice and judgements. We share equal time with each other in pairs.

Learn to listen to yourself and others with care and respect. Discover enough safety for yourself to be free to explore difficult feelings.

Peer Support offers us all the opportunity to create more of the life we want.

 

PSN is based on the principles that we all have the:

Capacity to be robust, resilient, and emotionally competent

Potential to be well and live a life that works

Power to recover, even when we are hurt and confused

Emotional flexibility to trust and accept support from others

Opportunity to heal and move on in our own time.
