Our strategic partners, Depression Alliance, talked about their peer support project, Friends in Need.  Brent Mind gave a presentation of the Peer projects and it is worth checking our their work at www.brentmind.org.uk.  National Mind outlined their national online support forum, Elefriends and K&C MInd presented Peer Support 101, for organisations wanting to know more abut peer support and how to set it up within their organisation.
