Helping people make connections is our passion. People who have strong connections to others have improved health, and communities where people are connected are healthier places to live. We provide training, information and resources for strengthening peer support groups and peer-led initiatives throughout British Columbia. We work with many diverse groups and communities including First Nations, rural, urban, multicultural, youth and online. PeerNetBC is a non-profit, registered charitable organization.
PeerNetBC has a wealth of resources to share with individual people, peer support groups and peer-led initiatives. One of the main ways we help people to connect is through our workshops. We provide open registration workshops that are available directly to the public and customized workshops created to meet the needs of specific groups and agencies across the province.
PeerNetBC workshops are designed to be accessible and useful for people at differing levels of skill and experience. We offer a range of courses every spring and fall with the aim to address a variety of learning needs. Be sure to check out our upcoming workshops.
For community groups or agencies interested in PeerNetBC’s customized workshops, check out our list of potential workshop topics.
