Webinar Series: “Peer Support in the Global South”

The recordings of the webinars can now be viewed in our output area in the section “videos”!

 

Peer support is increasingly being recognised as a best practice intervention for rights-based, recovery-oriented mental health care around the world. However, much of the evidence for peer support comes from the Global North. This month, the UPSIDES consortium in collaboration with the Mental Health Innovation Network is offering two webinars for stakeholders in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa to discuss peer support on their own home turf. These webinars will be held in English, they are free to attend, and all are welcome to join. Scroll down for more details about each webinar and how to join. We hope to see you there!
