Peer Support


Chronic Illness Alliance Peer Supporters’ Network

The Peer Supporters’ Network (PSN) is a forum for people who work in peer support to share information and knowledge, network, support each other, and strengthen peer support programs.

The network is made up of a broad cross-section of organisations across Victoria who support people with a primary diagnosis of a chronic health condition, and aims to raise awareness amongst health professionals in Victoria about appropriate peer support groups and pathways to access them.

The PSN meets four times a year covering a range of topics including guest speakers on peer support programs, current research, and workshops on various issues encountered in peer support programs. for more information contact denise@chronicillness.org.au
