We are so happy to say that we are launching the Peerspace Alumni Group- this will be a space available to anyone who has already completed our 8 session Peerspace programme.
We have developed the idea in response to feedback from our groups, who said that after the programme ended they would have liked to continue to find the same ingredients of solidarity, support and inspiration in a similar setting, on an ongoing basis. The groups will run monthly, and will provide a consistent base for people to return to, regardless of job changes, life circumstances, changes in mental health experiences.
We asked our current Peerspacers to guide us in thinking about what the group should provide and they said:
'A safe place you can go to to feel held, supported and not gaslit. To feel solidarity and to be championed'
So if you have completed a peerspace programme and would like to register your interest please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you haven't yet completed the Peerspace programme, but are interested, we will also soon be recruiting for Peerspace3: Aspiring (for those hoping to pursue a career in the regulated mental health professions) and Peerspace 5 (for trainee and qualified registered mental health professionals), so watch this space, or email us using the same address to register your interest - please specify in the email which group you would be interested in.
