Peer support

We provide one to one and group support from paid and volunteer Peer Mentors in Crawley and Mid Sussex. Peer Mentors use their lived experiences of mental illness to create a supportive environment in which you can discuss you can achieve your goals and aspirations.

These are just some of the things that Peer Mentoring could support you with:

• Help to achieve your goals
• Support to attend new groups and activities
• Help to attend important appointments
• Help to find worklearning or voluntary opportunities

We can also offer you the chance to gain an accredited Peer Mentoring qualification through our twelve week training programme. The course offers a chance to meet new people, learn new skills and gain confidence. Once completed, many learners go on to become Peer Mentors themselves.
