Supporting othersSupporting Others

If you have lived experience of mental health issues and would like to support others, we would love to hear from you.

Peer Support

Do you have your own experience of recovering from mental health problems? Would you now like to learn how to use that experience to help others?

If so, we may have just the volunteer role for you.

We will soon be looking to recruit and train a team of volunteer Peer Mentors and Peer Group Facilitators to join the Good Life Team.

Working alongside the nationally-renowned recovery and peer support training organisation, Imroc (www.imroc.org) we will equip you with all the skills necessary to use your lived experience to support others in their recovery journey. In return you will receive comprehensive training, wellbeing support, transferable skills and the personal sense of achievement that comes from supporting others.

Community volunteers

Do you have time to support us with our work in your community? Do you have skills you would like to share? Could you support our Staying Well activities?

Play a part in our Good Mood Cafes offering informal weekly wellbeing support.

Online support

Would you like to support others by sharing wellbeing advice through online forums and article submissions?

Sign up to Qwell – a free online support and wellbeing community – as part of our Good Life Service. You can join immediately and anonymously through any connected device.

Good Life Online

We are now bringing our Good Mood Cafes and Open Door calm spaces directly to you to participate in from home using Zoom video calls.

These sessions are aimed at encouraging community connectivity and increasing wellbeing skills. If you’re looking to engage with others to offer peer support and self-help techniques, visit Good Life Online for more information and details of how to sign up.

Co-production opportunities

Would you like to play a key role in developing The Good Life service as it grows across the county? CPSL Mind’s Co-production Team plays a vital role in designing projects and services, developing our strategic thinking and evaluating our impact.

Our Co-production Team meets once a month and offers a great development opportunity.

For further information about all of these opportunities, please visit our volunteering page

Years spent focusing on your own mental wellbeing issues don’t generally count as an advantage in life, which is why it’s a delight to me to find a situation where my experience is welcomed and valued.

For me, my involvement in the co-production team is both affirming and refreshing.
