Peer support is a relationship based on mutual understanding where people with a lived experience of mental health can support each other through their recovery journey.
RAMH recognises the unique benefit that can come from this insight and understanding. If you have ‘been there, done that and have the t-shirt’ then you are in a position to be able to support someone else through a difficult time through being there to listen and to share your own coping strategies and tools.
