EVENT: Exploring Peer Support in Moray, Monday 27th June 2022, 1pm-3pm

MWH Admin Team Event, News

Be part of creating a Moray Peer Support Collective! All Moray based people who offer any kind of peer support are welcome.

Do you use your personal life experiences in supporting another person? Are you providing support to another person by drawing on your own lived experience of the same thing? Perhaps you run a support group, provide one to one support, or offer peer-support in another way.

If so, Moray Wellbeing Hub, SAMH and the Scottish Recovery Network would like to invite you to participate in a series of events exploring the topic of peer support in Moray.

These events will provide peer supporters working across different fields and geographies in Moray the opportunity to come together to talk about what they do, share experiences and learning, provide support to each other and consider if they need  more support to fulfil their roles.

Peer support is where a person with lived experience of, for example a health condition, offers support to another person with a similar condition. Peer support makes an important contribution to the Moray care and support landscape. Some peer supporters are paid, while others do so on a formal volunteer basis, and others provide informal pro bono support.

Currently there are no Moray opportunities for peer supporters working in different fields and geographies to come together to talk about what they do, to share experiences and learning, to consider if they need more support in their roles, to think about what could be done to raise the profile of peer support and its benefits and to discuss how to try and encourage more people to become involved in peer support.

Moray Wellbeing Hub, SAMH and the Scottish Recovery Network therefore want to provide 4 free events, a mix of online and face to face, where peer supporters can join together to talk about the issues that matter to them, build relationships which provide support to their own mental health and wellbeing, and reduce isolation. We hope to provide you with the space to  collectively identify and produce creative local solutions that will create a positive environment for peer support across Moray.
