In conjunction with the mental health awareness month, we hosted the APTN Peer Support Practice workshop that was conducted from 10 to 12 May 2022!
Peer support is the process of giving and receiving non-clinical assistance to achieve long-term recovery from severe psychiatric, traumatic or substance use challenges. We are collaborating with Mariwala Health Institute.
The workshop was designed to be interactive. The participants learnt from and with the facilitators; Dr Shruti Chakravarty, Chief Advisor and QACP faculty of Mariwala Health Initiative and Pooja Nair Consultant Therapist & QACP Faculty of Mariwala Health Initiative. Anam Mittra, the Lead for new initiatives of Mariwala Health Initiative also attended as the host of the workshop.
With this workshop, we hope that the participants can share the learning they had with their own community, eventually start a peer support circle, and be able to form great mental health support among the community!
