The Marsh Awards for Mental Health Peer Support in England and Wales recognise excellence in mental health peer support.
Peer support happens when people work together, or support each other, from their lived experience. It can take place informally and formally, in all sorts of settings such as in the workplace, in user led organisations, projects and support groups. Find out more about peer support.
The Marsh Christian Trust, Mind and Peerfest partner organisations run the awards, which are presented at the annual Peerfest celebrations. Read Nikki's story about her peer support group and what it was like to win the award in 2016.
