Huge Congratulations to Lianne on graduating yesterday

Huge congratulations to Lianne yesterday who finally got to walk across the stage and become in her words ‘an official person’. Lianne graduated from Certificate in Peer Support Working in Mental Health and was in the class of 2019/2020 and graduation was delayed because of Covid.  Lianne did a split placement with the Dublin North, North East Recovery College and the HSE in Louth, her supervisors were Mark Cunningham(DKIT) and Rosemary Murphy (HSE).

Lianne started as a student with the Recovery College, became a facilitator and was student Chair for a time. Lianne continues to champion the recovery college and works for YAP Ireland.

Watch out world, Lianne is now ‘an official person’.

Meet the Peer Support Workers in the Recovery College.

Hi from Sean, Peer Support Worker.

Although this is a stressful time, focus on the fact that you are not alone. Although you are possibly physically isolated, we can still reach out to and support each other. As a Peer Support worker I believe in a mutual understanding of some of our fears and worries. We all have something to bring to this situation. Whether its an extra bit of support you need or just the connection to another person, please feel free to contact us and we can arrange a Peer support phone call. In the meantime take care of yourself and practice self care and kindness. I look forward to hearing from you
