Peer Connects Webinar: embedding a peer workforce

Scottish Recovery Network

Are you interested in growing and embedding a peer support workforce in Scotland?

In response to your enthusiasm about her session at The Future is Peer events, we’re delighted to announce that Mel Ball, Director of Lived Experience at Midlands Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust, will once again be joining us to share learning on why and how they developed a peer workforce.

We’ll also be welcoming Dr Linda Irvine Fitzpatrick, Strategic Programme Manager with Thrive Edinburgh. Linda will share learning from the Thrive Welcome Teams who have peer support roles to guide people to the right support for their mental health.

Grab a cuppa and settle in for 60 minutes of ideas and inspiration!

This webinar is for local and national policy leads working in mental health and wellbeing, third and public sector organisations, and service leads and managers.
