A peer support group has been started in Guildford for people living with mental health concerns, such as depression and anxiety. It meets every Wednesday 7.30pm to 9pm at The Spike Community Centre, Warren Road, Guildford, GU1 3JH.
PeerTalk is a registered charity, underpinned by the Methodist Church, whose aim it is to establish a national network of peer support groups for those living with depression. In the current climate of overstretched resources in the NHS, there is simply not enough support available for those struggling with their mental health.
The peer support group is facilitated by trained volunteers and its strength lies in the peer support on offer — where those present, with a lived experience of mental health struggles can offer support, feedback and encouragement to others in a similar place. The volunteers are trained to signpost those present to further support should this be appropriate.
People do not need to be referred. They can simply go along, and share in a safe and confidential space, where they will be heard, respected and supported.
For more information please contact Liz Whitfield, PeerTalk Administrator, 07908 493880, firstname.lastname@example.org
