Peer Companion Program
This program is less formal than the Peer Support Program. Formal goals are not made, rather those who may have just been diagnosed may need a friend to talk to and help finding out what resources are available. Although this is not as formal as the Peer Support Program, Peer Companions have received training and confidentiality rules apply the same as the Peer Support Program.
The Peer Companions frequently work with seniors and are available for all adults from ages 18 years and up.
If you have any questions about the Peer Companion Program, or would like to request a Peer Support Worker, or have a referral for someone who could use our services please call 604-675-3977 extension 3.
If you are a client of the Richmond Mental Health Team and wish to be referred to the Peer Companion Program, ask your case manager for a referral.
