Family Peer Support

Family Peer Support offers one-to-one contact with someone who has supported a family member with a mental illness. . .

A trained and knowledgeable worker can provide practical suggestions and ideas, hope, empathy and support, and information about mental illness and recovery.  The emphasis is on self-care, stress management and personal awareness.

Participants are matched with a Family Peer Support Worker who can meet with them up to 10 times, at a mutually agreed upon time and place, or by telephone.  The service is confidential and can be tailored to suit your needs.  Use the contact us link at the top right of this page or call our office at 250-384-4225 to find out more or to get involved.
