New! The Peer Bridging Program
This program offers interested consumer/survivors an opportunity to volunteer as Peer Advocates with ARA Mental Health and Peer Mentors with the West Coast Mental Health Network.
Peer Advocates will work four hours per week doing outreach advocacy tasks and sitting in on ARA advocacy sessions. Peer Mentors will do outreach in the community introducing consumer/survivors to the Network and doing some hospital visits.
This is a great opportunity to get some hands-on work experience in peer support.
If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, contact the Network office for more information. They can be reached at 604.733.5570
