Mind and Agenda are working to deliver a Women’s Mental Health Peer Support Programme. Overseeing this work will be an independent advisory group – and we would like women with lived experience to be a part of it.
The programme will focus on women who are facing a number of difficulties including homelessness, drug and alcohol misuse, offending and mental health problems. As well as the advisory group, it will include a grants programme, learning activities, and a detailed evaluation.
The advisory group will oversee the set-up, delivery and learning of the programme. It will help ensure that it is useful to the women who use it and that women have a say in how it works. The group will be made up of representatives from the women’s, mental health and grants sectors and four women with personal relevant experience. We are looking for women who can draw on their experience of the sort of challenges we want to address including mental health problems, homelessness, drug or alcohol problems or offending. We are keen to hear from women who have experience of receiving or providing support to other women.
We are working to achieve a diverse and representative group. We welcome all applications to ensure our work reaches people from a wide range of backgrounds, including people from disadvantaged and marginalised communities.
