Buddies Peer Support Service
"I think it's a really special thing to be able to talk to someone who truly understands what you're going through and is a living example that people can make it out the other side"
Buddies peer support service, shares the hope of recovery with ‘peers’ who are currently experiencing mental health difficulties.
