About the service

Speakeasy is a Peer Mentoring service providing crisis support to men between the ages of 18-65 who have been identified as at high risk of suicide.

Your designated Peer Mentor works with you to provide individually tailored, solution-focused support that is led by you to meet your needs.

Peer Mentors have lived experience of mental health conditions, or experience of caring for someone with a mental health condition. 

How can we help?

Peer Mentors will work with you for up to eight sessions to provide:

  • Solution-focused support.
  • Help in identifying and accessing services that will enhance your care.
  • Supporting identifying carer needs and referrals to relevant teams.
  • Encouragement and motivation to shape your own care.
  • A collaborative process for you to build resilience

Support will be available from 9am-8pm Monday to Sunday and sessions with your Peer Mentor will last one hour. 

How to contact us

You can access the service if you are a male, aged 18 to 65 living in the Upper and Lower Lea Valley areas (Ware, Cheshunt, Hertford and Broxbourne) and are currently receiving services via Adult Mental Health HPFT services.

Please speak to your Care Coordinator if you would be interested in starting to work with a Peer Mentor.
