Peer Supporters

You’ll talk or chat with a Peer Supporter. A Peer Supporter is someone who’s worked in healthcare, so they can better relate to your experiences. They’ve been trained by the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) to provide you with meaningful support and resources.


All interactions are confidential and unless there is a risk of harm to yourself or someone else. We also have a legal duty to report any actual or suspected child abuse or neglect.
