PSW (Peer Support Worker)

PSW's are members of staff with lived experience of mental health difficulties, who use their personal experiences and insight to support young people in Children and Young People's Mental Health Services. Because of their lived experience, some describe PSW’s as ’bridging the gap’ between the clinician and young person. A PSW may help plan and deliver care, help young people attend groups or go out in your community to help promote recovery.
