"Help From My Friends" Peer Support Program
The Help From My Friends Peer Support Program is a pilot project to create a peer support program for the music community in Nova Scotia and hopefully later, the Atlantic Region as a whole . The project provides training to those with lived experience of mental illness and addiction from the Nova Scotia Music Industry who want to support their peers experiencing a myriad of struggles.
Help From My Friends Peer Support Program understands the beginning of any supportive relationship is the wellness of the person providing support. Training in this program will focus on not only peer support training but also self-care and wellness skills for those wanting to provide peer support.
