Together is a national charity working alongside people with mental health issues on their journey to leading fulfilling and independent lives. We provide a range of services to meet the different needs of people with mental health issues. Our focus on service user involvement is at the heart of our philosophy and shapes every aspect of our work. It means putting the people who use our services in control of the care and support they receive.
Self-Management is a training course and peer support group for people who have experienced mental distress. During the course, participants will learn a set of problem solving and goal setting techniques taught by people with lived experience, who have “been there” themselves.
Some of the benefits of Self-Management have included:
- Feeling more in control of distress
- Increased feelings of confidence
- Healthier lifestyles
- Improved relationships
- Empowering people to move forward with their lives
Though the peer support each person gives or receives is unique and tailored to the individuals involved, all of Together’s peer support follows a set of core principles. If you are interested in giving or receiving peer support, contact Ian Sykes, Warwickshire Peer Support Coordinator on 02476 796416; firstname.lastname@example.org
