Mental Health Peer Support

Impact Peer Support is a peer-led social enterprise providing mental health peer support services and training.

We are experienced in delivering uniquely designed Peer Support Programmes to help individuals experiencing health & well-being challenges to improve their mental, physical, social, professional, spiritual and emotional well-being.

Our programmes provide ways in which individuals can learn new and sustainable support solutions to help improve the quality of  their lives in and out of work. For Employers this can mean a significant reduction in long-term absenteeism due to stress and mental ill health, saving companies thousands of pounds in sick pay.

Learning how to manage stress successfully and implement recovery techniques can increase employee work performance, productivity and improve employee engagement within the company through promoting a culture of well-being.

Our skilled Peer Consultants help you to focus on what recovery and well-being solutions work best for you. We do this through exploring fundamental subjects that help to enhance your journey towards total well-being.

For more information please see our Programme Details.

A Social Enterprise with a Big Social Impact

Impact Peer Support is a social enterprise that specialises in occupational and social mental health peer support to advance societies’ health and mental well-being.

As a social enterprise, the profits we make when delivering our occupational programmes help us to provide free community based programmes to individuals experiencing  long-term mental ill-health. These programmes can have a life changing effect on communities by significantly improving health and well-being, enhancing local social networks, growing peer support, sharing skills and increasing opportunities for individuals to establish peer-supported routes into volunteering, education and employment.

Occupational Training Support Services

We can offer employers four initiatives, all of which promote sustainable support solutions.

Helping you find sustainable mental health peer-support solutions for your employees’ health and well-being at work.

The government has highlighted health and well-being at work to be a key priority to improve the mental and physical health of the nation. Employers already have legal duties under the Equality Act 2010 to support employees with mental or physical disabilities and to make adjustments to enable continuous employment.

Individual Peer Mentoring

Making sense of the pressures and stresses that affect our lives and learning how to manage these in a positive and effective way can enable us to stay physically and mentally well.

For some, these pressures and responsibilities can feel overwhelming at times, creating symptoms of anxiety, feelings of loneliness, fear of failure and acute distress which can often lead to depression or unhealthy addictions. Being told to ‘pull yourself together’ or ‘just get on with it’ is probably the last thing you need to hear and can deepen the frightening emotion of losing control.

Community Based Mental Health Peer Support

The mental health peer support  programme, commonly known as the PSP, is typically funded by one or more of the following: NHS mental health providers, clinical commissioning groups (formerly known as PCTs), local authorities and a variety of departments in public health.

Funding is traditionally agreed for the delivery of several programmes known as cycles.

There are many benefits in delivering more than one or two cycles in the same geographical area; importantly, individuals who attend the cycles significantly benefit the most, with approximately 8 – 10 people per cycle.

The You Programme

Impact Mental Health Peer Support are delighted to announce The YOU Programme, a 12 month project to deliver 20, two-day empowering programmes, funded by Skills Funding Agency through Central Bedfordshire Council.

The YOU Programme is about your empowerment, your recovery, your options and how to make them work for you.

Using the model of intentional peer support, the Impact team will help you identify well-being challenges, find techniques to overcome pressures and barriers and create plans to improve your health & well-being with a clear focus on your plans for the future.
