Mindspace Peer Support Hub Information Drop In

Mindspace Peer Support Hub Information Drop-In

Mindspace are running a drop-in information session for services and individuals. Go along and find out more about the support available through their Peer Support Hub.

Mindspace peer support hub is guided by the Scottish Recovery Network’s mental health recovery values of connection, hope, identity and meaning. Peer support workers use their experience of life to promote recovery founded on respect, empathy, shared responsibility and mutual agreement. This support is flexible working in both structured and social settings to explore, encourage and develop opportunities and designed to build and support personal growth.

What is Mindspace Peer Support?

Peer support is neither mentoring nor befriending but a belief that anyone, with the right support, can live a fulfilled a life.

At Mindspace, peer support workers use and share their personal experiences, focusing on building relationships within a safe learning environment. Both parties have an opportunity to learn from and support each other, focusing on respect, strengths, empathy and hope, with everyone honoured as an expert within their wellbeing and recovery. 

Peer support can be described as help and support from people who have or are, working through mental health difficulties and using that experience plus their recovery journey to support others.
