My understanding for peer led support groups is that facilitators have no legal/insurance -required responsibility because we are peers and this is not a therapeutic group. Do you have any resource that states that? I only have my AFSP peer group manual stating that.

         We ourselves do not have such resources, and our brief online search did not cover any relevant resources either.  This leads us to suspect that such liability would be rare in actual practice and applicable only in unusual legal situations.
         However, we don’t offer this as a definitive answer.  If you feel motivated to pursue this question, we think it would be best to consult with others who have more legal background or knowledge than we do.
