How to become a peer support worker

To become a peer support worker (PSW) you need to have some experience of using health or mental health services (either personally or as a carer).

You need to be on a good phase of recovery and able to talk about your experience and help people focus on their personal recovery journey using your own expertise.

You need to be willing to undertake either in house PSW training or other specified PSW training, if you have not already completed any.
