Resumo

Peer support has proven its unique role and efficacy in the recovery process of people with mental health and substance use challenges. This narrative explores elements of a peer support relationship, through the eyes of both someone receiving and someone providing that support, within the context of community-based mental health interventions inspired by the citizenship framework of care. The interviewees highlight the personal impacts of the relationship on each person in the dyad and provide a discrete example of the potentiality of peer support work that is practiced outside of the formal mental health system and embedded in the community.
