Peer Work Network

The Peer Work Network (PWN) is an initiative sponsored by the Consumer Involvement and Initiatives Program of Vancouver Coastal Health to bring together peer workers to share and discuss their programs, experiences, skills, and ideas related to their peer work.

Purpose: The PWN is a space for peer workers to:

  • build community and connections
  • share, support and encourage each other
  • discuss developments in the world of peer work

Participation is open to all peer workers (folks using lived/living experience of mental health/substance use challenges in their work).
