Peer-to-Peer Support

We are campaigning for increased accessible peer-to-peer / friendship group support for young people suffering from trauma or crisis in their mental health and impacted by peer suicide.

We want to increase the visibility and ease of access to peer-to-peer support – as an alternative to the traditional helpline offer. Our experience of talking to Cal’s peer group is that what they really need is a relatable group where they can feel ‘understood’ and a sense of collective share and heal with trusted friends and peers of their own age group – especially following the loss of a friend and peer to suicide.

While we refine our support and referral offer of peer-to-peer support – please find below resources and helplines that you can contact for support.
