. "It all starts with connection. For those of us who have struggled with our mental health, we can feel alone and have a fear of rejection; that the world won't accept us. Peer support connects us with an entire community and collective history we never knew existed. A family of people who has been there."

Robert Cseko

Director of Administration

Jennifer (Jen) Salkoski

Manager of Administration

"Peer support is about connection. Connection is a safe space to listen and be heard without judgement. This is where the healing begins"
