Community Helpers

The Community Helpers training is designed for groups that serve youth and follows a peer support model and contributes to positive mental health within schools, community groups, corporations, and agencies. The training frames its peer model with the understanding that every school or community has natural helpers willing to support peers and friends in times of need.

Offered in partnership with Alberta Health Services, the Community Helpers program uses a variety of engagement styles such as art, group work, digital videos, mini-lectures, and role-playing. Through this training, participants are able to help build mental health equity in their school or community by understanding common mental health language, identifying levels of concern, connecting to resources, gaining experience implementing an easy-to-follow process for helping others, strengthening and practicing their helping skills, expanding their helping skills toolbox, and utilizing appropriate self-care techniques.

Typically, 8 – 14 hours of training, delivered to small groups or classes.
