Gryphon Psychology has successfully assisted many organisations to set up and maintain successful peer programs. A peer support program seeks to establish a volunteer group of employees who get trained in the appropriate skills to assist colleagues who are impacted by stress. Peer Support programs help by; creating an additional avenue of support for employees, creating a linkage between workforce and professional services, helping to reach employees who typically wouldn’t ask for assistance, and facilitating conversation around mental health and reduce the stigma associated with help seeking. Gryphon’s approach to peer support uses best practice principles in ensuring that the peer support group are appropriately screened, adequately trained and remain supported across the entirety of undertaking their role. Gryphon assists from initial set up to training to ongoing monitoring and support.
