PeerTalk's vision is to establish a UK wide network of volunteer facilitated peer support group meetings for people who experience depression and to offer support to their families.
In addition to establishing Peer Group Support Meetings, PeerTalk will organise events in order to inform and equip individuals and communities to make a positive response to mental health issues. These events will serve as a means by which PeerTalk recruits volunteers to act as facilitators for the Peer Group Support Meetings.
It is often the case that people who experience mental health issues also face difficulties in wider society through discrimination, intolerance and injustice. PeerTalk will seek to inform and equip communities to be confident in supporting people through such issues and enabling the communities to challenge the stigma associated with depression and mental health illnesses. We do this through promoting a positive narrative around mental health through social media and roadshows.
