We have created a new technique for identifying and allocating peer interactions [1]. The software architecture for Peer-Sourcing was designed to enable mental health peer-support across various support-capable individuals and communities. Peer-sourcing has similarities to crowd-sourcing systems, though has several unique requirements (e.g., decentralised, low numbers of peers with heterogeneous attributes, high task urgency, and synchronous interactions). This work was an indirect output of the SPACE project.
