Peer Support For Mental Health

Connecting With You

Peer Support for Mental Health

Authentically connecting with you, in or outside of your home, our Peer Support Mentors reach out with compassion and respect to help you feel seen and understood. Focusing on your needs, we are there to assist you with your day to day needs, like shopping, going to appointments or venturing out into the community to connect or even try new things. We prefer to be thought of as more like friends who you can feel safe with and know that we are there to emotionally support you throughout your everyday life.

Aspire Recovery Connection's Peer Support Mentors

At ARC, we are a 100 per cent lived experience organisation and our Peer Mentors work from their own personal lived experience of mental health challenges and their journey of healing. By drawing on our own experience, we offer a compassionate, non-judgmental approach that seeks to understand and learn from each other in a mutually beneficial relationship that is focused on meaningful connection, rather than ‘helping’ or ‘fixing’. It is a process where both you and your Peer Mentor explore and look at things from new angles, develop greater awareness of personal and relational patterns, and support and challenge each other as you try new things.

What can recovery look like?

Our recovery-oriented approach to mental health has a more holistic focus and incorporates all areas of your life – including emotional, physical, spiritual and social aspects.

Each person’s journey of recovery is unique, but for all of us it involves a process of healing from emotional and psychological pain and moving towards things that we want in our life that give us hope and meaning.
