Mental Health First Aid Peer Support

This Peer Support group was established in 2020 to support employees who may be feeling overwhelmed at any stage of their lives or are concerned about their mental health and wellbeing. They provide non-judgemental, confidential support and information to employees on a strictly confidential basis and are available should you wish to make contact with them to have a chat and find out more about supports that are available if needed. All members of this Peer Support Group have been trained in Mental Health First Aid.
