Mind, Get Up Set Up, NSUN, Bipolar UK and Together for Mental Wellbeing came together to host forums over the pandemic with peer supporters, and the resource is an output from these sessions, capturing shared learning.

In the resource, we consider:

  1. Values and principles of peer support
  2. Getting there: remote and online options
  3. Managing the online space
  4. Facilitation skills
  5. Safety and security
  6. Creative ways of connecting
  7. Wellbeing
  8. Returning to face-to-face and other options

The information will be helpful to any groups and organisations who operate models of peer support.
