The Angus Mental Health Peer Workers service is based in GP Practices in the North Locality of Angus. The service is to provide peer support to people with their mental health and wellbeing. Peer Support is defined as the help and support that people with lived experience of poor mental health and wellbeing can provide for others struggling to manage their mental health and wellbeing, built on shared personal experience and empathy.
The Peer Worker role will start by assessing an individual’s mental health and wellbeing. Peer workers will then support prevention and self-management by providing self-management tools and strategies, signposting to supports in the local community, and referring on to other agencies where required. Peer Workers will offer a brief intervention and will provide support to adults and carers to understand their difficulties, self-manage and future plan.
