PeerTalk Preston (Ingol)
Please note – we continue to meet face-to-face through the current lockdown, in a COVID-secure setting.
Our PeerTalk peer support group is for anyone facing depression, anxiety or similar distress.
It’s led by two trained facilitators. The support comes from others who come along who know the experience of mental/emotional challenges.
For more details about how the group runs, see our website here
What we do:We’re very clear about what the group is, and more importantly what it isn’t: the purpose of the group is not to ‘treat’ depression, it isn’t therapy, it’s a support group, and those who come along can draw strength from the knowledge that they’re not alone. It's a place where they’re heard, valued and accepted as they are. For more info about how the group works see http://www.peertalk.org.uk/index.php/support-groups where there are some FAQs that people find helpful. And when someone comes along for the first time we offer them this information leaflet: http://www.peertalk.org.uk/AttendingaPeerTalkSupport.pdf
Activities:During the meeting we chat about what's going on for people, and after the meeting we stay behind for a cup of tea or coffee and get to know each other. We don't chat about the content of the support group meeting as that part is over.
