Pop-up Peer Support is coming to Calgary’s Stephen Avenue August 15th and 22nd 10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Isn’t it odd that sometimes it’s easier to talk to a stranger than the people closest to you?
The idea of peer support is nothing new, of course. CMHA Calgary has been leading peer support activities for over 20 years. What’s great about this project is that it’s not necessarily about mental health. Whilst ‘Pop-up Peer Support’ is not intended as a substitute for professional mental health consultations, it is hoped it will get Calgarians talking about mental health, as well as providing a signpost to other help if it’s needed. It’s a space to share what’s on your mind today and make a connection with others who may have gone through something similar and have shared your experience. Recovery in mental health and/or addiction happens when we make a connection with each other.
We’ll have a couple of really comfy couches and some ice-breaking activities to start a conversation. Our hope is to improve connection, inspire hope and build deeper, more meaningful relationships with our fellow Calgarians.
