Peer & Trauma Support Systems

“I am so happy to have been a part of the Peer and Trauma Support Systems (P.A.T.S.S.) course last month! This evidence based 17 module course developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada, was filled with interactive and educational components which provided me with a much more solid understanding of how to be an effective and compassionate peer supporter. Syd Gravel, Brad McKay, and many other amazing professionals made the course content relevant and so memorable. I left knowing that I was bringing exceptional material back to my employer and felt proud to say that I was a participant amongst so many experienced and passionate peers.”
