Mission Statement
We work collaboratively with consumer/survivors and families to improve lives through information, networking, self-help, mutual support, and partnership. All programs and services, including volunteer-delivered programs, are delivered by people who identify as having direct personal experience of mental health extremes and/or homelessness and/or people who identify as psychiatric consumer/survivors as part of our peer support philosophy.

Peer Supporters are individuals with lived experience who have experienced recovery. Peer support is about a mutual relationship of giving and receiving support that is non-judgmental. Peer support workers use their real and meaningful life experiences to support others.

Newmarket Drop-in Program, twice weekly in partnership with LOFT Crosslinks: The Newmarket Drop-in is a safe and supportive space run by and for peers to socialize and access both amenities and resources to support our recovery journeys. Every Tuesday and Friday (Fridays starting February 3rd, 2017), 11am – 5pm 102 Main Street South, Newmarket Ontario.

Peer Support Outreach Worker: The Krasman Centre Peer Support Outreach Worker is a mobile peer supporter meeting individuals in the community at their point of need, where they are. Mobility allows for overcoming barriers that would limit access. It is about bringing support closer to those whose life experience and circumstances make it difficult to access services. Examples include: in-person meetings in community locations such as coffees shops, libraries and community centres.
