What is Peer Support and How Can it Help Me?


Peer Support is a process where a person discusses a personal issue with a non-professional, usually a friend or a co-worker. A person will select a peer support person primarily based upon trust. Most only share problems with someone considered credible, able to listen without judgments and capable of maintaining confidentiality. Peer Support members have the responsibility to understand their role and its limitations. They are trained to employ active listening skills, to avoid “solving” or taking on the person’s problems, and when appropriate, to refer the individual to professional resources.
