Peer mentors provide one to one short term support and encouragement to people with mental health problems in Camden, to help them regain their confidence and independence.
Opportunities are available for people to use their lived experience of mental health problems to create a short term, supportive and understanding relationship with someone who requires support. You will work with people to identify what you can support them with, and together help them to achieve an improved quality of life. You could be helping someone do things like
• Accessing more formal services
• Finding support that works for them in the community
• Regaining confidence and independence.
You will be required to work independently and safely in varied situations, to be able to keep boundaries and support mentees to achieve change in a supportive, non-judgmental way. You will need to record the mentee’s progress, and to work with VoiceAbility in reporting on the progress of this engagement.
