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 of Peer Work Network
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).

About the PWN logo
Artist’s statement – “The individual elements: The 3 human figures, the globe, and the heart combine to portray what I feel is the core of peer work: community and mutual support. I used the traditional VCH branding colours, but applied them as a gradient to give it a fresh/updated look.” – Joy Gyami
PWN “Membership Showcase” and/or “Recovery Stories”

The next Showcase on August 16th will feature PWN members, their projects, and recovery stories.
