Peer support

Peer support is mental health support based on shared experiences of dealing with mental health challenges. Also, it’s a relationship of respect that can help you feel understood. That's why SANE has a range of options to connect you with someone who really gets it. For anyone dealing with mental health concerns as well as family, friends and carers.

The SANE online forums are full of people who want to connect. They understand because they’ve been there too. Plus, it’s anonymous, so you can say what’s really going on.
