Mindspace is passionate about Mental Health and the promotion of self-management. The addition of our new Mental Health Peer Support Hub will enable us further this passion within the wider community.
Mindspace Peer Support Hub provides side-by-side support to people living with, or experiencing, mental health difficulties. Our community one-to-one based service is delivered through a blend of one-to-one peer support and/or group activities with an emphasis on supporting and promoting hope, confidence, life skills, connections, independence and relationships. At the same time, developing and sustaining meaningful, productive and enriched lives within the community.
Our Peer Support Hub is guided by the Scottish Recovery Network’s mental health recovery values of connection, hope, identity and meaning. Peer support workers use their experience of life to promote recovery founded on respect, empathy, shared responsibility and mutual agreement. This support is flexible working in both structured and social settings to explore, encourage and develop opportunities and designed to build and support personal growth.
Peer support is neither mentoring nor befriending but a belief that anyone, with the right support, can live a fulfilled a life.
At Mindspace, our peer support workers use and share their personal experiences, focusing on building relationships within a safe learning environment. Both parties have an opportunity to learn from and support each other, focusing on respect, strengths, empathy and hope, with everyone honoured as an expert within their wellbeing and recovery.
Peer support can be described as help and support from people who have, or are, working through mental health difficulties and using that experience plus their recovery journey to support others.
