Event description

Description

Being with others who understand can sometimes make all the difference, but facilitating Peer Support in a group setting or on a 1to1 basis comes with many challenges. This is why our Greater Manchester Peer Support Network Hub have created an inspiring day of discussions and activities to help us connect, share ideas, learn new skills and build confidence.

What will happen on the day?

This event will be a friendly and informal day specifically for Peer Support group facilitators, mentors, health professionals and people who are interested in setting up Peer Support in their community. We aim to come together, share what we know, learn from others and to strengthen our network, so please join us!

There will be a range of learning and network opportunities for peer support facilitators and those interested in peer support. We are very happy that there will be a presentation from We are Assif, the film screening of the 'Resilience' movie as well as a 'lived experience panel discussion' organised by Shelter and Manchester Mind volunteers. .

Furthermore we have planned workshops on topics such as 'working in a trauma informed way'; 'resilience & selfcare'; 'communication skills in challenging situation'; 'an introduction to mindfulness' and 'facilitation skills'.


A full agenda and how to sign up to the workshops will be send out nearer the time to attendees.
