Peerfest 2014

Building on last year's event, in partnership with a number of organisations, we held another exciting afternoon of creativity, a showcase of projects, music, workshops and debate.

It was for everyone whether they were involved in a project, thinking about starting one, or just had an interest in peer support.

Peerfest 2014 was possible through a partnership with Depression Alliance, Bipolar UK, Sound Minds, Bromley and Lewisham Mind, Mind in Harrow, Suffolk Mind, Community Network, NSUN, Together, Rethink Mental Illness, Essex Mental Health and Peer2Peer
