To promote the preservation of mental health in Blackpool and
to assist in relieving and rehabilitating persons suffering from mental disorder or
conditions of emotional or mental distress through the provision of support, education and advocacy.

What is Peer support?
Peer supporters, have lived experience with mental health and recovery, and are trained to provide safe and effective support to other adults experiencing mental health challenges.
Having “been there” themselves, a peer supporter can listen and respond from a place of true understanding. Being in a different place in their recovery process, they can communicate hope and optimism.
The values of respect, choice and mutual sharing form the basis of the relationship.
