Mental health challenges during the Covid-19: An experience of peer support telephone

Silvia Clementi, Deborah Occhi

Interviews were conducted with two peer supporters who provided help during the first lockdown. They underlined the difficulties of remote support and the possibility of being helpful to patients and their families. Based on this project, peer supporters have been further recognized, practitioners have involved them in problem solving processes and, therefore, peer support continues to be offered through telephone calls.
