Peer Support

Peer support groups bring together people who have a shared experience with mental health in a safe and welcoming space.

Oxfordshire Mind locality hubs are now offering a range of open peer support and focused activity groups online, please contact the teams for more information.

Having the chance to speak to people who have been through similar experiences to you can be incredibly reassuring, provide a sense of belonging, and help you find the support that’s right for you.

At Oxfordshire Mind we provide over 50 free peer support groups across Oxfordshire. Each peer support group is different, so we’re sure there’s one that would fit your needs. It might be based in a specific location, be specifically for young people, or centre around an activity (such as art, sports, or cooking). 

How to join a peer support group

If you think you’d benefit from joining one of our peer support groups, please call our Information Line on 01865 247788 or email us

We’ll arrange an options session (by phone or in person), during which we’ll speak about what type of peer support group would be most useful for you, and decide next steps.

Take a look at the calendar at the end of this page to see when and where your next local peer support group is taking place.
