Who is it for?
This course is for people who are interested in building a Recovery Peer Support group in their area.
This 2-week course will provide the starting points for setting up a Recovery Peer Support group. Peer support can be a transformative resource, enabling communities and groups to support each other. Recovery Peer Support brings people together with a focus on encouraging and sharing strategies for recovery. Peer support has been found to be a powerful tool in mental health recovery. We will look at the risks as well as the benefits of peer support groups. Students will leave the course with an action plan for setting up their own peer support group.
This 2-week course will meet Thursdays on: 16th and 23rd February
N.B. It will be necessary when you arrive at your course to complete a supplementary enrolment form for Learn Devon, the co-sponsors of this course. It would be very helpful, therefore, if you could arrive five or ten minutes early to give yourself and the tutors time to do this paperwork.
