Through my affiliation with the Mood Disorders Society of Canada (MDSC) as a peer support trainer, I can faciltate a peer support training workshop for your group or organization.
The Peer and Trauma Support Systems (P.A.T.S.S.) is an internationally recognized peer support training program for:
- First Responders
- Healthcare workers
- General Public
There is no substitute for being among people who are going through the same things as you. In response to the need for peer support, The Mood Disorders Society of Canada has developed a team of incredible people with years of lived experience, peer support, and mental health professionals experienced in addressing trauma.
The curriculum is formatted based on the “Guidelines for The Practice and Training of Peer Support” published by the Mental Health Commission of Canada. The peer support training workshop addresses the 17 evidence based objectives identified in that guideline which includes a component delivered by a trauma certified mental health professional.
