Peer to Peer Discovery 

In our Peer to Peer Discovery Sessions, people with lived experience of various mental health challenges will present wonderful stories of recovery and discovery.

Each session will focus on a particular psychiatric struggle, followed by the opportunity for people who share that condition to talk together about their own experiences, including challenges and personal approaches to wellness.
