Haringey Welbeing Network (HWN) - Peer Support Groups
Peer support happens when people who share the same experiences come together to support each other. It can be a very enabling way to engage with other people, knowing that they understand at a very fundamental level what you are going through.
Mental ill health can be so isolating, and this is a common complaint amongst service users. Peer support brings you together in a safe, confidential space to meet others who probably feel the same. Coping strategies are shared, friendships can be formed, and we talk about everything from the profound, to the weather.
HWN has reviewed its groups post-Covid. There are currently two groups on Zoom on a Tuesday and a Wednesday, and one face to face group at Station House on a Thursday. We are actively sourcing other venues and hope to re-start one in Wood Green soon.
