Why Peer Support?
Peer support works. Peer support is effective. Several experimental and quasi-experimental studies have demonstrated not only the benefits to individuals involved but also the mental health system and communities as a whole by saving millions of taxpayer dollars by reducing the use of the most expensive types of services. Mental Health Commission of Canada.
Shared experience is our connection.
Our peer support workers have gone through extensive training to connect through shared life experiences. They value your voice, your story and are ready to offer hope on the journey you will take together to explore/discover the strengths you already possess to live life on your terms.
