Our eLearning courses are a great way to learn more about BPD, peer support and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.

Peer Support Training

We currently offer a Peer Support online course, which you can complete at your own pace.

This is a course designed to prepare people with lived experience of mental health problems to be employed in peer support roles and support others in their recovery. It will not only provide them with the knowledge, skills and experience required to be in a peer support role but will also contribute to the creation of a recognised employment and career pathway.

It can also be useful for anyone living with mental health conditions, or interested in peer support, as the course is reflective and across 93 lessons the course covers topics such as trauma, resilience, positive risk taking, boundaries, self-help, self-care and more.

You can complete optional assessments to earn a certificate, or use the course for information only. This course is completely free, and no registration is needed. Visit the course page to begin the course.
