WHAT IS 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-PEER SUPPORT PROGRAM

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.
