"We provide a safe place for the peers to sharing their personal experiences"
Intentional Peer Support (IPS) Peer Learning Circle
Intentional Peer Support (IPS) is a relationship focused, strengths-based and trauma-informed approach. It is not based on psychiatric models or diagnoses as we will rarely talk about diagnosis, assessment or treatment. What we will discuss is your learning and growth, and how to form relationships that are mutually transformative, supportive and challenging.
IPS focuses on using one's own experiences to support and relate to those with ongoing and enduring mental health issues. It is about people engaging with others on an equal basis, drawing on their own and each other's knowledge, experience and skills. It is about helping one another to move towards the lives we want.
Complex-PTSD (C-PTSD) Peer Learning Circle
Many people are somewhat familiar with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), as it is often depicted in movies and television as a condition that affects war veterans and trauma survivors of mental or physical abuse, violence, natural disasters, and death.
However, living with Complex-PTSD is a different diagnosis and experience. C-PTSD is more specific to severe, repetitive trauma that typically happens in childhood.
The C-PTSD Peer Learning Circle is a support group to support individuals with C-PTSD.
We provide a safe place for the peers to sharing their personal experiences, to get social and emotional support and to learn from one another to manage their daily challenges.
