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.

Registrations are open for the following groups:

    • Chippenham (Pewsham Community Centre) – Mondays at 10.15am to 12.45pm 
    • Devizes (St James Centre) – Tuesdays at 10.15am to 12.45pm 
    • Tidworth (Tidworth Community Centre) – Thursdays at 10.30am to 1pm 
    • Evening Group (Online only via Zoom) – Wednesdays at 6.30pm
