I loved how the PSAC conference allowed people from all over Canada, and some from other countries, to gather and discuss best practices in peer support. This is essential as peer support grows in acceptance and professionalism whilst maintaining true peer values.
The conference was an amazing opportunity to meet and connect with peer supports in various fields from across Canada in was an invaluable experience overall.
This is a rejuvenating and inspiring time to energize the peer support workers. I have been reminded of the reason that I entered this field of work and was able to find fresh purpose and drive to complement my work.
Not only did I learn a ton about peer support — research and evidence, possibility models, and best practices, to name a few things! — I also made a ton of connections with people who work in a variety of roles within the peer support field, from clinicians to peer supporters to researchers.
