CONFERENCE ON PEER SUPPORT

The First National Conference on Peer Support is being held in Halifax, April 30-May 2, 2014.

The conference features an amazing line-up of presenters, and represents a huge step forward in establishing peer support as a critical part of mental health recovery.

We’re also very excited to announce that SupportWorks has been selected to present at this conference – offering a great opportunity to share what we’ve learned and to learn from others!

If you are interested in attending, check it out on the Peer Support Accreditation and Certification Canada (PSACC) website. If you want to know more about the conference, but can’t attend, let us know – Jenny, Tara and Jeb have broken open their piggy banks to attend, and will be happy to share what they learn.
