Specialized Peer Support Worker Training

Peer support is the process of disclosing personal experiences with mental illness and addictions and a personal recovery journey to inspire hope and recovery for others. 

The PEI Division of the Canadian Mental Health Association offers Specialized Peer Support Worker Training in a 119-hour program that includes two weeks of in-person training, a practicum, and a written and oral exam. The training will equip individuals to use their personal experience to support others by providing specific education, tools, skills, and exposure.
