What they said about Peerfest 2016

….London take a bow….Thanks to everybody in the planning and execution of such a wonderful unforgettable day to be proud of

The original vision all those years ago was to celebrate peer support with a festival of fun – EVERY BOXED TICKED!

It was truly fantastic and the only regret from our guys was that they left too early. Great to see so many familiar faces, and meet some now ones too.

 

All of the months of hard work and planning finally culminated in a fantastic day full of energy and enthusiasm, learning new stuff in workshops, hearing about inspiring projects and groups, making new contacts, catching up with friends, and last but definitely not least, enjoying the brilliant range of entertainment put on at the end of the evening. The Trans-Siberian March Band were a revelation!

 

….Rich Mix was a great venue for it – sizeable yet cosy feeling at the same time, with a great variety of different spaces – perfect!

 

….A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Sound Minds, Sutton Mental Health Foundation and the Antenna Collective for all of your hard work and dedication in putting on such a truly awesome event. Massive pats on the backs all round!

 

All of my organisers from my Welsh support group absolutely loved it and so did the organiser of the London depression meetup group and already want to book their place for next year! (Apparently it should be in the Millenium Centre in Cardiff 🙂 )

 

….It’s easy to go about our everyday jobs and sometimes feel like we’re doing our work in a bit of a bubble – this event just helps to reaffirm that we are not!

 

We are all doing work of huge value to the communities and networks that we serve and meeting others who are doing the same is just very inspiring and helps to make us feel part of a bigger movement which is really important. So, once again a huge congrats and thanks to the Sound Minds collaborative. I hope you  are basking in the glory of your success!

 

….Fabulous fabulous fabulous event loved every minute well done team, organisers and volunteers and off course participants who all attended and made a great day! 

 

Just wanted to say what a lovely day yesterday- well done to everyone

Thanks Rima for a spectacular event!

Would like to thank Peerfest and all the organisers for an amazing event yesterday. Was truly inspirational to see how many people are getting involved with the peer support movement
