We invite you to the third Gathering Peer Voices event. This event is open to Edinburgh’s Peer Workers, Peer Volunteers and all people interested in mental health, recovery & lived experience. It’s for people who would like to learn about and contribute their views on how we can strengthen peer practice and improve mental health support in Edinburgh. It will primarily be over Zoom. There will be also be options to join using Teams for those unable to access Zoom at work.
Louder Than Words
The theme for this gathering will be Louder Than Words. Workshops and conversations will focus on how we can all take action to enable change. We will have opportunities to learn about and reflect upon the actions already being taken by peer workers and their co-workers in Edinburgh; the role and history of service user activism in Edinburgh; what is happening beyond Edinburgh, and much more!
The gathering will be broken up into three sessions. If you are not able to attend all three, you are welcome to come along to the parts that you can manage. Signups for workshops will be sent out towards the end of February but so that you can plan before then, the timings for Gathering Peer Voices will be –
