Testimonials

I had no idea what to expect before meeting my Mentor. I didn’t think I was mentally unwell but life was getting so hectic and stressful with work, children and my mother’s illness that it had started to affect my health.

I desperately needed to talk with someone not linked to my family and friends but didn’t want to go to a clinical service– That’s when I met Carol, she was terrific! She made every session feel like meeting up with a friend to have coffee and a chat with and without realising it, every time I came away from a session I felt more positive and more hopeful and had a better understanding of what I needed to do to manage my feelings!

From the first week I was able to also open up and share my past and present experiences and receive very useful support and insight which I was able to implement immediately. The “open and frank” discussions helped me to feel free to express myself without prejudice, allowing your team to provide me with the most appropriate feedback. Each consecutive week I was able to learn and incorporate new ways and means of improving my mental wellbeing and this in turn has armed me with the knowledge that I have already passed on in supporting others.

Workplace Based Peer Support Services

Helping both the public and private sectors to find 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.

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.

Pathways To Recovery

Impact Mental Health Peer Support have launched an 8 week Pathways To Recovery programme which is available all across Bedfordshire from September 2016.

The word “recovery” can mean different things to different people. What we mean by recovery is to use the strengths we have to get better or better manage how we feel.

If you feel you need to make some important changes to have the kind of life you really want, you will learn a huge amount by attending one of our refreshing programmes.
