"When "i" is replaced by "we" even illness becomes wellness"
- Malcolm X
Our Peer Supporters are trained individuals who use their own personal experiences in life to relate and support other people living with similar personal experiences.
Peer Support is not a clinical service and does not focus on diagnosis. It is strength based and rooted in compassion for oneself and others. Peer Support is based on mutuality, hope and sharing to empower others to achieve their own recovery and quality of life.
Peer Support promotes healing through taking action and by building relationships among a community of equals. It is not about "helping" others but about learning from one another and building connections.
Peer Support serivces are professional and confidential (excepting harm to self or others) with no cost to individuals accessing our services.
