Peer support for people in crisis: Reflections for development of services

We’re very excited to introduce this fantastic thought piece about peer support for people in crisis, which has been funded by Health Education England (HEE), and developed by ourselves, the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, and With-you Consultancy

This document aims to bring together our existing knowledge and experience of peer-based approaches in crisis services. Included is the experience of peer support for diverse communities and throughout there are stories of personal experience to illustrate a range of views on crisis settings and the potential for peer support.

Our Director of Client Services, Heather Tattersall, has been on the HEE Task and Finish Group and subsequent Implementation Group for Peer Support as an emerging role in mental health services. Heather co-authored this reflective document. You can read the document by taking a look at the below flipsnack or download it here.
