Peer Support may be defined as the help and support that people with lived experience of a mental illness or a learning disability are able to give to one another.It may be social, emotional or practical support but importantly this support is mutually offered and reciprocal, allowing peers to benefit from the support whether they are giving or receiving it.
They help people find solutions to disputes in formal and informal situations.
Key elements of Peer Support in mental health include that it is built on shared personal experience and empathy, it focuses on an individual's strengths not weaknesses, and works towards the individual's wellbeing and recovery.
Though the language of peer support is relatively new in the UK, in practice self-help groups and mutual support has been around for many years.
The group members support each other to set goals and overcome the problems that make achieving those goals more difficult.
Similar initiatives are being developed for people in prisons and single parents (Wales), and young Black men, women, and people in supported housing (England).
