Peer Support Service supports people, through shared experience, to make sense of what is happening for them and how they want to move forward. A Peer Supporter can meet regularly with a person face to face or support can be given over the phone, which means we’re able to offer peer support services all across Christchurch and Canterbury.

Percival House service is a Peer Support service which provides group and/or individual support for people experiencing mental health issues in North Canterbury.

Peer Health Coaching helps a client identify ways to improve their own health and well being and provides short term coaching and support. Peer health coaches work with a person on a specific health related goal over 6 sessions (plus a pre and post meeting). Coaching activities promote successful outcomes through motivational interviewing and attention to strengths, needs and goals.
