Peer Support Training

Creating connections is integral for anyone who is struggling with their own situation.

Whether it is workplace stressors or personal circumstances, peer supporters can provide a sense of empowerment to those who need it.

Prairies to Peaks Consulting Inc. pioneered the concept of Peer Support in Western Canada, and we have been training Peer Support Workers for over a decade. We are here to train peer supporters in the best ways to provide that support and sense of empowerment.

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
  • Co-workers
  • People in your sporting, religious, or community organizations

Peer Support Training Courses

Our Peer Support Training Course is aligned with Peer Support Canada, which is the national standards body for Peer Support. Our training courses are held in high esteem across Western Canada and have been recommended by agencies in Saskatchewan and Alberta.

Your peer support training course involves theoretical and situational education designed to equip you with comprehensive practical skills and a sense of confidence in your ability to provide support.

Our Peer Training courses are offered throughout the year and are open to the public. Course completion is dependent on the successful passing of an exam.

In-Person Peer Support Training Courses

In-person peer support training courses are provided over the course of four training days. You will be provided with all course materials, refreshments, access to the trainers, and practical opportunities for learning. You will leave with a comprehensive understanding of providing peer support and confidence in your ability to assist those in need of support.

Online Peer Support Training Courses

We believe that peer support training should be accessible to all. Our online peer support training programs and refresher programs allow you to take the course from wherever is convenient for you.
