Community Support

Peer Support


Peer support us the process of disclosing personal lived experience and recovery history to provide support, guidance, and inspire hope for others experiencing similar situations with their mental health.


CMHA-PEI currently employs four Peer Support Specialists who offer the following services:

Self-Help Groups

A self-help group (also known as a peer-led or peer support group) is a free-of-charge service that is voluntary (you have to want to be there), ongoing (it can continue as long as the members want). Self-help groups are led by people who share the same issue or experience. The leaders are regular people: volunteers, survivors, seniors, youths, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and friends – people whose only qualification is personal experience of an issue.

CMHA PEI Monthly Family Support Group Charlottetown

Are you caring for a family member or loved one who is dealing with a mental health concern? Participating in self-help offers social support, relief from isolation and a place to share practical information. Most importantly you know you’re not alone because you’re connected with others with similar struggles and experiences.

Held every 2nd Tuesday of each month, at 7 pm at the CMHA PEI Division Office, 178 Fitzroy Street in Charlottetown.
