Peer Support offers individual and group peer support, workshops as well as Wellness Recovery Action Plan. WRAP is an individualized system for self monitoring and responding to stressors, early warning signs, while developing wellness tools, coping skills, support systems, and crisis plans
Peer support workers have lived experience with mental illness and or addictions and intentionally share parts of their lived experience and recovery journey in their role as a supporter. This fosters a connection and a sense of hope while promoting coping strategies and self-help. Peer support workers provide one-to-one and group peer support to help with system navigation, encouragement of self-advocacy, general listening, support, and skill development.
A Peer Support worker is available at Grey Bruce Health Services – Owen Sound site to support those who have presented in the ER with a mental health emergency or who are hospitalized in the inpatient Psychiatry Department.
