Opportunities for involvement

There are a whole host of ways in which you can get involved with our work - from joining a service user forum and volunteering, to offering peer support to others and sharing your story. How will you get involved?

Join a service user forum

These bi-monthly meetings (once every two months) are open to all service users and give the opportunity for West Sussex Mind to discuss plans and proposed future activities with those who are going to benefit from them. The service user forum is one of the most important ways in which we communicate with people who use our services.

Become a peer volunteer

When you feel ready, and after discussion with your recovery worker, you may want to offer peer support to others as part of your own recovery journey. Becoming a peer volunteer, using your lived experience of mental health, is a great way for you to develop your skills and bring empathy and hope to others. There's an opportunity to do a 10-week course to prepare you as a peer volunteer.

If you'd like to join a service user forum or become a peer volunteer, talk to your mental health support worker in the first instance.
