Rethink Mental Illness supports over 130 local peer support groups in England which are run by people with their own experience of mental health issues and/or their carers and family members. The groups provide empathy, acceptance and reassurance. People can share experience and receive guidance from peers in similar situations. The groups also provide an opportunity for information and for members to increase their self-confidence. Anyone can go along for a coffee and chat or get in touch anytime via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (01823 365327).
