Peer counselling for those with mental illness

Peer counselling is an exchange of knowledge and experience and offering emotional and practical support between people with similar experiences. The loved ones of people with mental illnesses can also receive counselling.

The peer counsellors are people who have experienced a mental illness and have recovered well from it. The peer counsellor will not diagnose anyone or share specific suggestions but they will listen to you and motivate you to move forward. Tallinn Mental Health Centre’s peer counsellors can share their experiences in the following fields:

  • depression
  • anxiety disorder
  • bipolar disorder
  • psychotic disorders (such as schizophrenia)
  • autism spectrum disorders (Asperger’s syndrome)
