The first UK text that focuses on peer support, this book manages to combine an intellectual, research based approach with sensitive values, leading to a text that is accessible and practical.

Peer support is an area of mental health that is developing and expanding very quickly. The editors have created an interesting and informative work that will help people understand the current debates in the field. Anyone interested in peer support will find this engaging and thought provoking. – Dr David Crepaz-Keay, Head of Empowerment and Social Inclusion, Mental Health Foundation, UK
