Moray Wellbeing Hub’s popular course “Peer 2 Peer” is returning from May 5th for another intake with fully funded spaces available for Moray folk and limited spaces available for non-Moray individuals (see ticket costs for details).
Peer support is a growing area of focus, coming from the realisation that within ourselves and from our lived experience, we have the power to support our peers in life’s challenges, create change and challenge stigma. You will leave the course with essential knowledge of peer-support including recovery theory and peer values.
Moray Wellbeing Hub uses Peer2Peer to empower individuals in a range of roles to be better able to:
- Harness their own peer experiences as a tool for use in their area of specialism to support better recovery and wellbeing outcomes for those they work with.
- Deliver peer-training courses to a QA standard *Work alongside fellow Champions or Volunteers to support existing and develop new projects with the MWH.
- Challenge stigma and influence change in their communities by using their own experiences, as well as supporting others to do the same.
All participants are expected to attend as an open peer of life challenges: We welcome those in professional or support roles but within the course, they will be expected to put these aside and join the groups as equals.
- One hour introduction on Wednesday 5th May (either 1.30pm-2.30pm or 6pm-7pm)
- 3 x 2 hour session for the P2P Essentials on May 6th, 10th and 12th May 10:30am-12:30pm, 3:00pm-5:00pm or 6:00pm-8:00pm.
- Should participants wish to deepen their knowledge further, there is Peer 2 Peer Next Steps which is a further 3 x 2 hour slots on the 17th, 19th and 20th May – 10:30am-12:30pm, 3:00pm-5:00pm or 6:00pm-8:00pm.
We are offering 3 time slots for the specified dates and aim to run 1 or 2 of these depending on numbers, please select alternative time slots during checkout which you would be able to attend should there be insufficient numbers to run the one you are booking.
Background: Peer2Peer was developed as a result of a European Union-funded partnership project (that included the Scottish Recovery Network) to train people with lived experience of mental health problems to support others in their recovery.
