SELF CARE FOR PEER SUPPORT WORKERS

Peer work is a personal, emotive vocation which requires individuals to reflect on and share their mental health challenges repeatedly for the benefit of others who are experiencing similar difficulties.

It can be empowering for peer workers and vastly beneficial for individual’s currently experiencing mental distress, yet it does have significant challenges in order to stay safe and continue providing support and care for others.

This online workshop is delivered in two parts. Students will need to attend both to complete the workshop outcomes.

Student learning outcomes:

• Increased ability to recognise triggers and set appropriate boundaries
• Explore how to share your story whilst maintaining your safety and those hearing your story
• Explore practical ways to develop a self-care routine
