Peer Support Worker (PSW)

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