About the service

Peer mentoring offers one to one solution focused support in the community. The service is staffed by volunteer Peer Mentors. They will work with you to look at what support you need and the goals you would like to work toward which could include reducing isolation, building confidence and self-esteem, improving communication and social skills and managing your mental health.

How we can help?

The Peer Mentoring partnership can last for either 3 or 6 months with meetings planned weekly. Sessions are approximately one hour per week. Your Peer Mentor will aid you in your recovery through practical assistance and support to allow you to maintain your independence.

Examples of support your Peer Mentor can provide include:

  • Encouraging coping, self-help and self-management techniques
  • Support to access community groups that will enable you to widen your social network
  • Support to increase independence and manage living skills and responsibilities
  • Help in identifying other organisations which may provide support

This service is available to adults who are recovering from mental health problems and their carers living in Hertfordshire. You do not need a mental health diagnosis to access this service.

If you are currently in receipt of a personal budget or direct payment you will need to use this to pay for this service.
