Peer support activities are what we do! Once you leave the uniformed services, you miss the camaraderie and banter and the family you leave behind. Taking part in local activities is a great way to meet new people, talk to peers, share stories and then access further support. We have some great referral pathways into the NHS mental health teams, employment charities, Veterans UK to name a few. Why not join in a local activity group!
The NHS says this about Peer Support “Peer support is a range of approaches through which people with similar long-term conditions or health experiences support each other to better understand the conditions and aid recovery or self-management”.
