Training Days in 2024

As of March 2024, we have offered one in-person training day in the North-East. We will be offering hybrid training at the end of April 2024 - apply now!

The training includes input around depression and how it might present in those who attend the group from a mental health professional. We practise skills used by volunteer facilitators in the group. There is role play of a peer support group scenario.

We share information about how PeerTalk came to be, and we consider some of PeerTalk's policies and procedures. The expected commitment from the volunteer and ongoing support is outlined. There will be lots of interesting discussion along the way.  Lunch is provided and travel costs for the day can be reimbursed.
You can find a full role description at and you can read testimonials from facilitators here: 
PeerTalk Facilitators do not offer advice or counsel or opinions to the groups as the support comes from the peers. Facilitators enable this to happen.
