Peer Support

Stepping Stones is a user led organisation. And it makes a difference. Day to day it helps that the people at the top have empathy with those who use our services.

Stepping Stones adopts a strength based approach. Also, it recognises that people who have mental health problems can recover from their difficulties and can contribute, just like the rest of us. We recognise the importance of having hope.

Stepping Stones recognises that through respect, dignity and mutual empowerment, peer support helps people regain a sense of purpose and reduce the chances of having a relapse.

“Peer Support underpins everything we do in Stepping Stones. Without it we wouldn’t be able to employ great staff, or be where we are at present.”

John White, Stepping Stones Operations Director
