Peer Helper Training Course

Association of Participating Service APSU will run the next Peer Helper Training course from 18 November – 5 December 2014. We invite people with the personal experience of problematic substance use, with or without mental health issues, to apply for this free training by 20 October 2014. The application will be followed by an individual assessment of each applicant before the final confirmation of enrolment.

APSU has been successfully running the Peer Helper Training since 2005. This training is designed to put a professional frame on participants’ lived experience. It particularly enables people who have had a disrupted education to test the waters, build their self-esteem, skill and knowledge level. Indeed, many people who have been through the Peer Helper Training have then undertaken further education or other socially engaging activities.

In addition, APSU will cover travel expenses for up to four participants from rural areas.
