UHI Perth have a strong working relationship with a fantastic local mental health and wellbeing organisation called Mindspace. Mindspace is a mental health charity that has been based in Perth for 40 years and provides services such as counselling, peer support, and group courses that help people understand and manage their mental health.

What is Mindspace Peer Support?

Mindspace peer support workers use and share their personal experiences, focusing on building relationships within a safe learning environment. Both parties have an opportunity to learn from and support each other, focusing on respect, strengths, empathy and hope, with everyone honoured as an expert within their wellbeing and recovery.

  • Manage emotional and psychological challenges
