Testimonials

“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.
