Published: August 2012
This briefing paper provides a short descriptive overview of peer support in mental health (including dementia) and learning disabilities, based on some of the recent literature, and highlights key messages from work being undertaken across the UK by the Mental Health Foundation.
This work looks at how peer support can help people to recover, or get more control over their condition, and to live fulfilling lives in their communities.
