Peer Support Groups

Weekly Peer Support Groups provide a friendly space for anyone experiencing mental health problems. They bring together people with shared experiences to support each other, and provide a place where you can feel accepted and understood.

Facilitated by skilled members of our team, everyone’s experiences are treated as equally important. The groups can enable people to develop coping skills and feel accepted and understood, improving self-esteem. Supporting others can also improve self-confidence.

All group members are asked to agree to a confidentiality code to ensure that anything shared in the sessions remain within the group. Group members are invited to take a shared responsibility for how the space is used.

Our groups are currently offered via Zoom, where possible we aim to keep the groups limited to geographic location. The timetable of groups is as follows:

> Chippenham – Mondays 10am

> Malmesbury – Mondays 12pm

> Devizes – Tuesdays 10am

> Melksham – Wednesday 12pm

> Trowbridge – Fridays 10.30am
