    • Mental Health

In this podcast for the ALLIANCE Live series, we explore peer support in digital spaces and the capacity for kindness and empowerment.

Our Network Officer, Lesley Smith, is joined by two participants involved in our Meaningful connections research project: Hayley Chandler, Development Worker for Edinburgh's Peer Community, and Emma Morrow, Peer Support Lead at Bipolar Scotland.

During the conversation Lesley, Hayley and Emma speak about peer support in digital spaces. They explore the importance of personal connection within peer support and how that correlates to speaking to each other through our screens. The conversation also touches on some key tips and ideas for digital peer support and directs listeners to a range of free resources to learn more.
