On last Friday’s Good Morning Show, host Bridie Sheeran and newsreader Angela Cameron were joined by Elaine Browne, founder of Perspective peer support centre, which has opened its doors above the Family Resource Centre on Mount Street.
Elaine talked about how peer support differs from other mental health services, and how her own struggles have given her the experience to become a peer support practitioner.
Her peer support group runs on Wednesday evenings at 7.15 pm. A men’s peer group will run weekly starting Tue 16th April. Also available are a ‘writing for wellbeing’ group, and a monthly carers’ group.
Elaine is not currently making money from this work – it all goes back into developing the centre. She told Bridie about the fundraising activities coming up, including a night of trad with tea & coffee on 3rd May, 7.30 -10.30 pm.
Perspective will officially open Mon 27th May, with surprise special guest on the night – all welcome.
