Recently our group, Organization for Bipolar Affective Disorders, engaged Prairie to Peaks Consulting to provide a customized extensive course via Zoom which was beneficial during the pandemic. The Peer Support training course for our group was invaluable as it provided information for learning more about peer support. Our group provides peer support for the community through meetings and one on one mentorship. The course materials were intense and extensive giving us many strategies to help us in our work within mental health. All of us enjoyed the course and found Beth Henry and Brian Pugh to be amazing instructors with great compassion and empathy. Everyone one of us from our group recommends the Peer Training course as it is unlike any other courses because it’s based on real interaction between peer to peer. We highly recommend Prairies to Peaks for any organization interested in mental health and wellness.

We recently had the pleasure of Beth Henry with Prairies to Peaks Consulting INC. speak to some of our members via zoom, on the topic of “Coping Strategies to Manage Stress.” The topic and information Beth gave us is extremely important not only in our personal lives but also in our profession as registered dental assistants. We deal with our own personal stress as well as the stress of our fellow colleagues and our patient’s every day. Beth gave a fantastic presentation! She kept us all engaged and wanting more! She is cheerful and upbeat who gave us all great points and ideas to try to implement in our daily lives. We were very fortunate to have had this presentation and all left feeling we could tackle anything! We know now that stress can be managed and what works for one may not be what works for the other. Stress and coping strategies are as unique as we are. Thanks again!

This talk was awesome. Very relevant for today’s overwhelming new way to live with all these precautions. It was easier to understand and way easier to put into your way of life about managing your stress. You can never get rid of stress but it gives us easy coping skills and changing how we think and what triggers our stress and how to manage it. I have already put some of your tips to changing how I think and that its OK not to finish everything on my list of what I want to do in a day. I like how you got everyone engaging in the topic and validating people’s ideas of how they cope in a stressful moment and what triggers it.
