Peer Support and Employability Initiatives

by Glasgow Association for Mental Health (GAMH) Claimed

Mental Health Issues, Peer Support, Employability

GAMH approach to peer support and employability parallels that used for individual services in that we provide a continuum of support designed to meet each person’s needs at each stage of the recovery / employability pathway.

We offer a range of opportunities which promote and encourage peer support all of which develop the capacity, potential and leadership of people with lived experience to share their knowledge and skills with others.

We do this through providing training, support and skills development and continually evaluate our peer support activities, in order to build the evidence base for the effectiveness of peer support and encourage others to join together.

There are 3 main options following referral and assessment all of which adopt the peer support approach:
- Peer Support groups
- Peer Mentoring
- Peer Led Independent Groups

We have developed a Motivational Exchange Programme offering a range of participatory sessions focussing on recovery awareness, peer support and employability in partnership with a range of local colleges and community organisations .
Access to the Motivational Exchange Programme is via internal referrals only
