The Krasman Centre is excited to announce that members of our staff are among the first group of Peer Support Workers in Canada to be trained to facilitate PeerZone groups! PeerZone is a series of three hour peer led workshops in mental health and addiction where people explore recovery and whole of life wellbeing. PeerZone was developed by Mary O’Hagan, Sara McCook Weir and other peers in New Zealand. Krasman Centre is represented on PeerZone Ontario Steering Committee coordinated through CMHA Toronto in collaboration with a range of community agencies, that is working to implement and develop this program to have a strong presence in Canada. Check out the PeerZone video for more information about the program, and stay tuned for more information about upcoming PeerZone workshops being offered through Krasman Centre.
