New guide to mental health for Peer Supporters

Our Amazing Futures interns in East Sussex have created a brilliant guide to mental health for the young people who volunteer as Peer Supporters with the project. And even if you are not a volunteer or a young person, it’s a great resource for anyone wanting to know more about supporting young people’s mental health.

The handbook is written in simple, accessible language with lots of illustrations and includes:

  • Information and statistics around mental health in young people with additional needs
  • What you can do to help a young person with their mental health
  • What to do if you don’t know what to say
  • What to do if you are worried about a young person
  • How mental health problems can look
  • How to look after your own mental health
  • Services that can help

Download the Peer Supporters Mental Health Handbook here. And if you are interested in becoming a Peer Supporter or know a young person who might be interested, find out more about Peer Support volunteering with Amazing Futures in Brighton & Hove and East Sussex.
