We work with service users to help them develop skills which can generate income, identified as a key goal in mental health recovery in Uganda, through hands-on skills such as beading or other arts based activities.
Peer Nation work with professionals to ensure that referrals are made. Peer Support Workers usually make contact with peers while they are still in hospital and continue to work with them in the community.
Meeting family members and discussing a service user’s recovery is part of the work of the Peer Support Worker and they will work with the peer to organise these meetings.
