New peer support service in Scottish Borders

We are delighted to be launching a new mental health peer support service within the Scottish Borders later this year.

The service will be available to people living within the Scottish Borders who are aged 16 and over.

Rachael Honeyman, Health in Mind's Scottish Borders Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Manager, said:

‘Informal support from our peers is something many of us have relied upon over these last few months and we are really proud to be introducing a new mental health Peer Support service within the Scottish Borders.

'I am looking forward to speaking with local communities across the Borders and beginning to develop what this new service will look like now, and in the future.' 

Over the next three months, we will be asking people in the Scottish Borders what they want the new service to look like. 

We will be hosting several consultation events on the following dates:

21 October 2020, 3.30-4.30pm
