        Peer support is emotional and practil support between two people who share a common experience, such as a mental health challenge or illness. A Peer Supporter has lived through that similar experience, and is trained to support others.

        Peer Supporters listen, provide emotional support, and most importantly, inspire hope.

        CMHA and Peer Support nada redraw partnership.

        Peer Support nada and the nadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) joined together in early 2018 in an effort to expand peer support in this country. Both CMHA and Peer Support nada value and believe in the power of community-based mental health services that include increased access to peer support where people live, work and play.

        Especially considering the negative mental health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, people across nada are struggling to get the mental health help they require. Almost 9 in 10 (87 per cent) of nadians tell us they don’t have access to the mental health support they need, and only 1 in 3 (35 per cent) agree the current public mental health system is meeting demand.

        Even though COVID-19 vaccinations are ramping up, we know that the mental health effects of the pandemic, including anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, substance use, will last long after we flatten the curve. Peer support is an effective, evidence-based and compassionate mode of providing rapid, accessible and culturally sensitive support for people who are struggling.

        “The time to invest in peer support as an integral part of the mental health system is now,” says Debbie Wiebe, Member, Peer Support nada Certifition Committee. “The silver lining of the pandemic is that it’s forced everyone to think differently about how we do things. The Peer Support nada Mentors and Certifition Committee see an urgent opportunity to strengthen the practices and presence of peer support to meet the increased demand.”

        In pursuit of this rapid expansion, Peer Support nada and CMHA have agreed to redraw their partnership in two years to re-establish Peer Support nada as an independent peer-driven organization with its own autonomy, governance structure and staffing. Until that time, CMHA will continue to provide organizational support in the form of administrative, financial and marketing communitions services as a strategic partner.

        CMHA is enthusiastic about the future of peer support in nada. We look forward to supporting and enabling Peer Support nada to grow into an independent leader that champions the recognition, growth and accessibility of peer support across nada,” says Margaret Eaton, National CEO, CMHA.

        Peer Support nada and CMHA are both committed to maintaining the consistency and quality of the ongoing Certifition of Peer Supporters and Peer Support Mentors throughout the transition. The organizations will work together to maintain the integrity of this high-quality certifition process while they undergo a rigorous strategic planning exercise to map out Peer Support nada’s path forward. A new manager of peer support will be hired later this month to work with key stakeholders to ensure a seamless transition.

        Peer Support nada and CMHA look forward to planning a new future together that will champion the power of peer support and help meet the urgent mental health needs of nadians.

        Our History

        In 2010, the Mental Health Commission of nada and its Workforce Advisory Committee (WAC) identified an opportunity to transform the mental health system in nada through the integration and promotion of peer support. Peer Support (Accreditation and Certifition) nada was created into rry on the work started by the Mental Health Commission of nada, promoting the growth, recognition, and accessibility of peer support.

        The organization developed a robust certifition process for Peer Supporters and Family Peer Supporters, grounded in the Standards of Practice.

        In early 2021 CMHA National and PSC entered into a series of discussions about our relationship and decided together to redraw our partnership. CMHA National continues to provide a home for PSC until we n establish ourselves as an independent organization. We continue to collaborate with CMHA National and have found new ways of working together to support peer supporters across the country.

        Frequently Asked Questions:

        1. What is certifition?

        Certifition is a verifition of one’s alignment with the nationally endorsed Standards of Practice for Peer Support and is recognized across nada. The Standards of Practice outline the experience, competencies and knowledge needed to deliver peer support effectively.

The certifition of peer supporters recognizes the contribution of peer support in the mental health and addiction field and endorses peer support work as a valid and respected reer.

        Certifition affirms that an individual is competent to do peer support work. Their skills may be utilized within community organizations, clinil settings and workplaces. Peer support work is increasingly valued and is being introduced into new settings as well.

        The Peer Support nada Certifition standards have been endorsed by members of the peer support community across nada and, as such, the credentials are national in scope, allowing peer supporters to rry the credential with them in work settings across the provinces and territories.

        Certifition helps extend a peer supporter’s network across nada. Through mentorship, ndidates connect with peer leaders from across the country, learning emerging best practices and having opportunities to collaborate.

However, we do wish to highlight that certifition is invoiced by phase, so the fee is not required up front (unless requested by the ndidate). As certifition n take at least 1 year to complete, the invoices n be spread out. We also work to facilitate the timing of payments to ensure ndidates feel supported in this way.

        Please note there are bursaries available to those pursing the mentor certifitions. For more information, please contact us at info@.

        8. What is the difference between peer support and family peer support certifition types?

        Both certifitions are based on peer-to-peer relationships, meaning that the individuals or group members involved have a similar, common experience.

        Our peer support certifition is designed for individuals with lived experience of a mental health and/or addiction challenge or mental illness who are supporting others with a mental health and/or addiction challenge or mental illness.

        The family peer support certifition is designed for those practicing family peer support, where the term “family” includes those in a person’s circle of support. Family peer support is support that is provided by family members who have a mental health and/or addiction challenge or mental illness to others in a similar situation. This relationship recognizes the impact that shared experience n have on the recovery journey of all involved.

        9. Is certifition considered a training program?

        Although there are many learning opportunities throughout the process, certifition is not a training program. Certifition is a confirmation of your knowledge and experience, rather than a form of training. While prior participation in peer support training may be beneficial for individuals seeking certifition, it is a not a requirement for eligibility.

        10. Do you offer direct peer support services?

        Peer Support nada is the national certifying body for peer supporters in nada and does not offer any direct peer support services.

        If you are interested in receiving peer support or mental health services, we encourage you to reach out to lol peer support organizations to determine what may be available in your community. Your lol CMHA branch may also be a good resource to direct you to lol service options.

        Have a question we haven’t answered above? Please email us at info@ and we would be happy to support.
