Peer Support Services
Peer Support is the art of sharing one’s lived experience to cultivate hope in another. A Peer Supporter has a personal understanding of a specific journey, such as a mental health challenge. Peers provide emotional and social support to others who share that experience.
Peer support services are about building connections, breaking down barriers, and providing a safe, stigma-free support network for anyone in need. Peer supporters do this by drawing from their lived experience and their peer support training.
You might provide peer support to:
- Your family members
- People in your sporting, religious, or community organizations
