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.

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.
