Portsmouth Peer and Wellbeing Team

Portsmouth Peer and Wellbeing Team is a unique service offering 1:1 support and wellbeing groups for adults at the PositiveMinds centre in Portsmouth who are finding life difficult. We will also be offering bespoke services for people who require additional support in the community.

The Portsmouth Peer and Wellbeing service is a new style of service offering peer support for anyone who feels low, worried or hopeless at the PositiveMinds Centre in Portsmouth.

Through 1:1 support and useful workshops, we can help you identify your needs and get you moving towards your goals. We also operate a 'tell us once' system: a chat with us can get you connected to your community and its services, without having to explain yourself again and again. We hope to put you in touch with the right support at the right time.

Simply book in to talk to peer support and wellbeing practitioners. The peer practitioners have lived through difficulties themselves and can relate to how you are feeling. We will work with you to identify goals and walk alongside you in your recovery journey.

We can support you with:

  • Drop-in
  • Face to face sessions
  • 1:1 Support
  • Advice and guidance
  • Workshops around managing wellbeing
  • Support Groups
  • Social inclusion
  • Graded Exposure

Please note that PositiveMinds is not a crisis centre or 'Mental Health A&E' and we don't stock or prescribe medication. For urgent support, contact the NHS on 111, or Samaritan's on 116 123
