Background of Mind Peer Support Directory
The current Mind Peer Support Directory was created in 2013 using data gathered from a Mind study to scope mental health peer support across England: Piecing together the jigsaw.
The directory currently lists over 300 groups who identify as ‘offering peer support in the community’ across England and Wales. Mind hopes to encourage more peer support groups to join the directory as a resource for users, family, friends, professionals and anyone else to find peer support in their local area.
We want to develop the directory’s scope and usability to:
- Make it easier for users to search for peer support.
- Invite new peer support groups to join the directory, particularly from community led peer support and marginalised communities.
- Widen the directory to include peer support groups in Wales.
- Look at the geographical gaps in the directory and do more work to invite groups from these areas to join the directory.
