Programs & Events

Peer-led support groups

We know the power of peer support and believe it must be integrated into all aspects of healthcare but also continue to expand on services and supports beyond “treatment as usual”.

Support Group Meeting

Peer Support empowers individuals to make the best decisions for themselves and to strive toward their goals toward mental wellness.

Our groups offer a safe space for individuals living with mental health conditions to come and equip themselves with the tools they need to help them on their journey.

Peer groups should not be used as a replacement to treatment but used in connection with treatment

Our hope is that our group members will see:

      • Improvement to their quality of life
      • Improvement to their whole health, including, chronic conditions
      • Improvement with the engagement and satisfaction of services and supports
