Why Peer Support?

Shared experience is our connection.

Peer support is a vital component of the recovery journey for individuals facing mental health and substance use challenges. It offers empathy, validation, and hope from those with lived experience. By sharing their own journeys, peer supporters provide a unique perspective and valuable support. Peer support addresses social isolation, breaks down stigma, and fosters open conversation. It complements other treatments and guides individuals towards recovery and wellness. The importance of lived experience cannot be overstated, as it brings understanding, relatability, and a sense of connection. Peer support plays a significant role in promoting resilience, fostering connections, and enhancing overall well-being.

With the invaluable support of our community, we are making a greater impact by reaching more individuals in need. Our services are expanding beyond traditional boundaries as we extend our reach to clinical sites in both rural and urban communities within Manitoba. By collaborating with these sites, we are bringing peer support closer to those who may have limited access to such resources. Together, we are building a stronger and more inclusive support network, ensuring that support is available to individuals regardless of their location.

Reaching even more people

Since 2020.
