• A vocational training course. It enables individuals who have experienced mental health problems to become peer workers or personal assistants to those who are currently living with similar difficulties.
• A unique and innovative initiative which presents us with an opportunity to influence, on a social, political and policy-making level, how we approach recovery for people living with mental health issues.
• A European project funded by the EU through the Lifelong Learning Programme
The main focus of the Peer2Peer project is to establish an innovative model of vocational training by adapting and integrating peer support training with psychodrama and video therapy sessions. Students have completed this course throughout Europe. Through the establishment of this vocational training the Peer2Peer project aims to facilitate the employment of individuals as peer support workers.
The course has been adapted to suit peer support work within Borderline Support UK’s remit.
