Group Name: Peer Support Worker Community of Practice
Description: The Self Help Resource Centre is a non-profit organization that is funded by the United Way and the City of Toronto. We have been connecting people with peer support groups since 1987. These groups continue to support people in overcoming major life challenges and transitions on the path to improved health and happiness. We do this through training and supporting peer support group leaders, providing resources to groups, operating an online database and information line to refer people to groups, and through managing peer support programs at large organizations.
The Self-Help Resource Centre is starting a peer support group for peer support workers and volunteers. This ongoing monthly Community of Practice meeting will be an opportunity for peer support group and one-on-one facilitators to get support from other peer facilitators, share valuable resources and experiences, and brainstorm solutions to challenges in the field. What to bring:questions and challenges experienced in peer support. Coffee, tea and light snack will be provided! If you would like to attend please RSVP to Melissa Corcoran.
Where: 46 Delaware Avenue | Toronto, ON, M6H 2S7
When: First Thursday of each month from 4:00 p.m. until 6 p.m.
