Peer Support

Peer Support
Peer Support allows people with a mental illness to learn and be supported by someone who has lived through a similar experience and who can relate to the difficulties the ill person is experiencing. They can help your loved one back into the community by helping them to socialize and to carry out simple tasks that they may be having difficulties with. This would include things like taking public transport or learning about available resources in the community. They also provide companionship and help people to reintegrate into the community.
