Peer Support

Peer Support is defined as the help and support that people with lived experince of mental illness or addiction recovery are able to give to one another

It may be social, emotional or practical support but importantly this support is mutually offered and reciprocal, allowing peers to benefit from the support whether they are giving or receiving it.
Key elements of Peer Support in mental health include that it is built on shared personal experience and empathy, it focuses on an individual’s strengths, not weaknesses, and works towards the individual’s wellbeing and recovery.

Though music. Industry-focused peer support is relatively new in the music community, in practice, self-help groups and mutual support has been around for many years. In Canada and the USA, Peer Support in its various forms has been a widely recognized and utilized resource that has been developing since the 1960s.Research has shown that peer-run self-help groups yield improvement in psychiatric symptoms resulting in decreased hospitalization, larger social support networks and enhanced self-esteem and social functioning.
