BeWell@StepOne Peer Support Groups

Regular Mental Health Support from people who understand how you feel

We offer a range of weekly online and in-person peer support groups

Would you like regular online support from people who understand how you feel? Could you share your experiences to help others?
Run by two of our course trainers, our online and in-person peer support groups offer you an opportunity to meet others, share your experiences, discuss the techniques learnt in our courses, and develop self-management techniques to maintain good mental health.

All Welcome Wellbeing Group

Our All Welcome Wellbeing Group meets weekly through a zoom meeting. The group has a general check-in to ensure everyone has a chance to discuss their week. This is followed by a topic chosen by the group in the previous week.
This has included:
• How to manage panic attacks
• Loss
• Thinking patterns
• Managing Stress
and many other topics.

This is an ongoing group and you do not need to book a place. Just contact the training team for the meeting code and join us at 2pm on Tuesdays.

*New* Carer's Support Group

Our new Carer's Support group will begin on the 3rd March 2022 as an online peer support group - meeting via Zoom.

This new group offers an opportunity for Carers to talk about their concerns, share their experiences and receive support from each other.

There will be a check-in to support participants wellbeing, followed by a discussion topic chosen by the group.

This group will be run every Thursday - drop-in (virtually) as and when you need. Contact our training team for details on how to join the meeting.

Tuesday Peer Support Group

Our BeWell Tuesday Peer Support Group meets face-to-face in Paignton each week and offers an opportunity for you to meet with others who can personally relate to your experiences.

This group is focussed around craft, so you can get creative, put your artistic skills to the test and create something, or just have a coffee and a chat.

The group is very supportive but having fun is also a valuable part of the benefits joining this group can offer.

Thursday Peer Support Group

Our BeWell Thursday Peer Support Group meets face-to-face each week in Paignton to enjoy - a fun quiz for the first hour of the session, followed by an hour of mindfulness.

We will talk you through a mindfulness journey, a mindful body scan and other forms of grounding techniques.

Only join in with the activities that you are comfortable with. Stay for the first hour, join for the second hour - or come along for the whole session!
