Peer support

  • Share

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.
