People coming together to share their experiences and help support each other is what is known as peer support
The Coronavirus lockdown has had an increased impact on many peoples mental health. With isolation being one of the top contributing factors of mental ill-health, it is more important now than ever to help as many people as we can with their mental wellbeing.
One of the ways we can do this is through peer support, even just sharing our own experiences with others can help a person feel better and less alone. knowing that someone else understands what they are going through. Sharing with a person about how you cope and the things you do to help manage your mental health can be a real learning experience for them.
You may have a way of coping that the other person had never thought of trying, you can help others improve their wellbeing and teach them things they wouldn't have otherwise known.
At the moment our peer support groups are unable to meet in person due to the Coronavirus lockdown but we do have a number of support groups available if you feel like you would benefit from attending one: https://dudleymind.org.uk/peersupport.php
Share your stories with us on social media, let us know what your coping techniques have been during the lockdown and help others improve their wellbeing.
