Testimonials

I absolutely enjoyed my Peer Support Training with Prairies to Peaks.  In the four days, there was a lot of information that was covered.  The information touched on many subjects, was thorough and very well put
together. Beth and Brian are very professional and I was very appreciative how they make time for everyone as well as their efforts to respect what journeys people are on.  They are very sensitive to the energy in the space. My goal in taking this course was to decide if this was the path I wanted to take as I reassess my career.  With the quality of information that was given, I believe that this course has given me the tools to start my journey in Peer Training and moving forward in the mental health field.  I would recommend this course to anyone interested in Peer Training or as a stepping stone in mental health work.

Peer Support Training Alumni

“The [CPW] course gave me a framework and hands-on tools to think about peer support and how it should be when it has a recovery orientation. In addition to the tools, I found the discussions around trauma, fear, and ethics very valuable in helping me think about what it means to be a peer support specialist. This course also brought me to a new understanding of how I could use my own recovery story to help others – something I hadn’t expected.”

Michele Longo, Organizational Change Management Consultant

“Beth Henry is leading a revolution in the mental health community. Her work through Prairies to Peaks Consulting for the [Peer Support Worker] Training is invaluable and has saved my life. I experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, and am a survivor of long term chip sexual abuse. I am dyslexic and have difficulties with focusing. Sadly, I am one of thousands of people in Calgary who have similar experiences and struggle to cope.
