The Digital Accelerator Project set up a new peer support network for accredited Mental Health First Aiders and Mental Health Champions in Bexley in March 2022.

The group aimed to support and grow the mental health agenda across the borough.

The group is facilitated by Mind in Bexley’s Training and Community Lead and still runs on the last Tuesday of every month.

3 hours of MHFA peer support and signposting delivered

Support network to continue post project close


  • We discovered that MHFA First Aiders and Champions were very keen for ongoing support post the end of their courses.
  • They were particularly interested in the opportunity to check in on tricky issues as they tended not to have a team or line manager who could support them on this.
  • An unstructured approach to the meetings worked well and allowed the participants to set the agenda.

“Thank you all. I love these meetings…”
