Derbyshire Recovery and Peer Support Service

Derbyshire, UK DE5 3HG

Derbyshire Recovery and Peer Support Service support people who are having difficulties with their mental health across the whole spectrum of mental illnesses. We do this by offering targeted goal-focused support, developing peer support and volunteer opportunities across Derbyshire, and also peer support groups where there is a need.

One in four people will experience a mental illness in their lifetime - it is not as uncommon as you think. We have put together over 100 pages of advice and information to help.

Rethink Mental Illness has been awarded a contract with Derbyshire County Council and the four Derbyshire CCG’s to deliver a county-wide Recovery and Peer Support Service.

Delivered in partnership with People, Potential, Possibilities (P3) and Derbyshire Federation for Mental Health (DFMH), the service will help people improve and maintain their mental health and wellbeing and reconnect with their local community by offering access to targeted one-to-one staff support, telephone support and community groups, and is open to anyone over the age of 18 living in Derbyshire who is experiencing mental ill health.
