Peer support training for adults and youth that enhance helping skills through training on mental health topics & resources
Giving people the opportunity to improve their skills of helping others with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, suicidal thoughts or self harming behaviour, and provide them with training and alternative skills to enhance their natural helping abilities
There are certain people you go to when you're struggling. It might be stress, it might be sadness, it might be a mental health issue. These people are our friends, neighbours, teachers, family.
The training we provide will ensure that these helpers know what formal resources are in our/your community. Formal resources include things such as health agencies, counselling services and crisis centres. Through our program, people will be even more effective at helping others struggling with mental health issues.
