Peer Support Groups – Info & sharing session

Thursday 4th July, on zoom, 11am – 12.

With artist & peer support group facilitator Patti Lean and Amy Marletta (Upland’s Creative Director)

Join us for a chat on zoom about the potential of establishing more peer support groups for Upland members throughout the region. We’ll discuss:

  • what a peer support group is/ could be
  • what you would like from a peer support group
  • why you might set one up / what the benefits would be
  • ways that Upland could support groups to establish and sustain themselves
  • how you might go about setting up a group

Patti Lean will share her own experiences of facilitating and being part of a peer support group which has been running for nearly 10 years including sharing experience of what has worked, challenges which have arisen and the proven benefits.

This is a free session open to Upland members as part of our professional development programme. If you have already registered your interest in being part of group – or if you just want to find out more - please come along! 

If you would like to join us please email [email protected] to confirm. You will then be sent the zoom link to join the session.
