Partner Organisations

Self-Help Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
Self help groups are a fantastic way of bringing together like-minded people who really want to make things better. Self Help Nottingham and Nottinghamshire help local people to create new groups with a focus on health and wellbeing. Once established, there is ongoing advice and support for development and growth.
Self Help Nottingham and Nottinghamshire have played a key role in the success of Notts Peer To Peer Network.

Well Worth Knowing

Nottingham Recovery College.
Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust are justifiably proud of the Nottingham Recovery College. This is a college with a difference, bringing together adults who have experience of mental health challenges with professionals to offer training courses and coaching. Their aim is to help wellbeing and recovery, all in a non-stigmatising, accessible environment.
There is a huge variety of highly-praised courses and other resources, far too many to list here. Why not visit their website to find out more?
Understanding and coping with self harm.
Self harm often reflects the anguish of mental pain or emotional distress.
Although it is very common, it is also difficult to talk about. There are lots of websites offering advice and support, these are just a couple of suggestions. You may wish to visit Harmless, a Nottingham-based organisation with national reach. For young adults and everyone else too, there's Students Against Depression. This is a really comprehensive site that is packed with resources. As with all our links, Notts Peer To Peer Network is not responsible for the contents.

Don't know where to start?
NHS Choices have put together an informative and reassuring guide that's easy to read and makes a great starting point. There's information about common mental health problems and about some less common ones as well. There's guidance on what to do in a crisis and a list of helplines too.
