Global Peer Support Celebration Day – Quotes from Hamburg

To celebrate the Global Peer Support Celebration Day (GPSCD), the UPSIDES team from Hamburg of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) has gathered a small collection of quotations why peer support is important and what it means to them. This collection has been developed in cooperation with peers from many different areas and backgrounds and together with the Association for Recovery Support and Peer Counselling Hamburg (GBPH). At this point, special thanks to all contributors and for the constantly inspiring, stimulating and beautiful cooperation! We hope that peer support will be made available to even more people in the future.

These quotes can also be found in our Multilingual Area.
