PeerZone Info Session at the Gerstein Crisis Centre

At Gerstein Crisis Centre, we believe every person has the right to live a self-directed life and to pursue their greatest level of wellness and happiness. Gerstein Crisis Centre has actively supported consumer survivor initiatives by employing consumer survivor run businesses (e.g. Abel Enterprises, Fresh Start Cleaning & Maintenance, Raging Spoon and AWay Express) through all of our operations. We support artists with lived experience and are fortunate to have a beautiful collection of art in both our homes. We house the Consumer Survivor Archives and strongly support their efforts.

PeerZone helps to solve a number of problems:

  • It enhances the well-being for people with mental distress. Mental health and addiction services face a real challenge in supporting people to live the lives they want.
  • It provides professional development and support for the peer workforce. The peer workforce is the fastest growing occupational group in mental health today and has a long history in the addiction field. But many peer workers are under-utilised and under-supported.
  • It is very cost-effective. PeerZone is a cost-effective solution from the point of view of participant outcomes and peer workforce development. We achieve better participant outcomes at less cost in three ways.

The Gerstein staff will go into much more detail on the particulars of the program and how to pick and apply to attend the workshop(s).
