What is peer support?
Peer support means being supported by someone with lived experience of mental health challenges. A peer support worker is someone who has chosen to share their own experiences to support others towards improving their wellbeing.

Peer mentor support for friends, families and carers of people receiving support from the Tees crisis intensive home treatment team
If your loved one is receiving support from our Tees crisis intensive home treatment team (IHT), you might also feel you need some support.
Our peer mentors are on hand to:
- offer you formal and informal support
- support you and signpost you to other services for the support you or your loved one need
- offer a listening ear.
How does it work?
We will endeavor to make contact with you during the first three days of the care journey but please feel free to contact us (number above) or your loved one’s IHT at any time.
Friends, family and carers are highly valued by our service and we would welcome any input from yourself to improve and enhance the patients care
If you would like to talk to a peer mentor, please contact us at the peer mentor support service. Contact details are at the top of this page.
