Peer Support /
What is it? 🤷♀️
It’s easy to feel alone. Even if you’re surrounded by friends, family, and others who care about you, it can still feel like they don’t truly understand what you’re going through.
But if you talk to someone who’s been in your shoes – someone who truly gets it – this person can offer unique advice, tailored to you, based on their own lived experiences.
This is Peer Support: the power of genuine human connection with someone who understands you.
Why is it magical? 💫
While many appreciate the invaluable help that peer support offers, the profound impact on the peer supporters themselves is often overlooked. Those who’ve overcome challenges, from addiction to navigating life with autism or ADHD, find sustained healing precisely by helping others.
Being a peer supporter isn’t just about helping – it’s an integral part of the peer supporter’s own ongoing recovery and empowerment.
