Southampton Peer Support

From sketchbook journaling to walking, or just simply a tea and a chat, we offer friendly and informal groups where everyone feels safe, accepted and understood..

Peer Support is an opportunity for people to use their own experiences to help each other. 

Through friendly, informal groups, participants can learn together, support each other and give each other hope. from sketchbook journaling to walking or just simply a tea and a chat, we create spaces where everyone feels safe, accepted and understood.

The groups are run by people who have experienced their own mental health problems, which means everyone can mutually support each other whilst all views and experiences are equally valued.

Our peer support groups are funded by Southampton Integrated Commissioning Group and Mind.

Who is it for?

Peer Support is for anyone who feels that connecting with others could help their emotional health. 

You do not need to have a diagnosed mental health issue and you do not need to be accessing other kinds of wellbeing support to join us. Just simply pop along to a group of your choice without any referrals. 

We understand coming along to a group or activity for the first time can be difficult, so if you would like to talk to someone or meet up with one of our team first, we're happy to help.
