Sometimes, for one reason or another, we don’t get the services we need when we need them. Peer Advocates can walk beside you to advocate to get your needs met. If you are searching for solutions to concerns or problems relating to your mental health or addiction treatment or support, the Peer Advocacy Service provides goal and solution-centred advocacy to help you in that process. The service provides support to peers on specific issues and provides information but not advice.

Peer Advocates are available to meet people in the community or in services between the hours of 8:30am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday. After hours appointments, including on the weekend, are negotiated on a case by case basis based on need and urgency. The Service is issues-based and time limited.
