NGO Mental Health & Addictions Service
This service provides clients with support from people who have lived experience of mental illness or addiction (peers). The support is individualised to each person’s needs and helps them to understand and implement their own recovery and to strengthen their involvement in the wider community.
Affinity’s Peer Support Workers all have lived experience of mental illness and are actively working towards their own recovery. They apply the recovery principles of Hope, Choices, Empowerment, Environment and Spirituality.
The Peer Support team works alongside all Affinity teams and provides a culturally appropriate service. For more information contact Affinity Services on (09) 531 4040.
