Providing Peer Support

Peer Support, Recovery and Being Well

Peer Support is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care through the South East Local Health Integration Network. Our agency provides support and services within South East Ontario to people who are living with addiction and/or Mental Health and seeking Peer Support as a ways and means of managing and working toward being well. Many of our staff are Certified in the practices and delivery of Peer Support as per the OPDI Peer Support CORE ESSENTIAL PROGRAM and Certified Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) Facilitators through the Copeland Centre for Wellness and Recovery.
