Equally Connected: Peer Support for Black, People of Colour and Minority Ethnic Communities
Introducing Equally Connected, West Lothian’s new peer connecting and support group service for Black and People of Colour and minority ethnic communities. This service seeks to provide self-management support to people from marginalised communities living with mental health challenges. This service is trauma-informed, culturally relevant and led by people with lived experience of mental health and as a member of BPOC and minority ethnic communities.
Do you identify as Black, a Person of Colour and/or Minority Ethnic? Would you like to become a mental health peer support volunteer to support people to improve their mental health and wellbeing in West Lothian?
We are looking for 1:1 and group peer support volunteers who identify as having had lived experience as a member of BPOC and ME communities and experience of mental health difficulties and have an awareness of their own recovery journey. We are recruiting volunteers for 1-1 peer support, and to co-facilitate a 10-week self-development group and a women’s group.
