Derby City Life Links
Derby City Life Links is a peer support and recovery service that brings together those currently receiving mental health support and those with lived experience of mental ill health to support others with similar needs. They will provide a range of support tailored to each individual’s personal goals around their mental health and wellbeing, such as achieving stability; pursuing voluntary work or employment; or managing their wellbeing. A key element of the service is peer support, connecting people with lived experience of mental ill health to support others with similar needs.
There is a dedicated information line to help those looking for resources and local groups, helping people to identify the types of support available to help them with mental health needs and general wellbeing, including sport and leisure activities.
