This two-hours check-in session is designed to provide trained peer supporters with the necessary tools and strategies to effectively manage their peer supporting journey in a sustainable way, without jeopardizing their own physical and mental health. This session will include discussion and scenarios to help participants identify potential challenges and learn from each other. Furthermore, the session will also provide an opportunity for peer supporters from different settings (e.g. schools, workplaces, community) to widen their network of support.
The discussion will focus on the challenges in providing peer support, as well as how to effectively process and manage negative thoughts shared by peers. Additionally, participants will learn strategies to continue conversations with peers who may be hesitant to open up, as well as knowing when it is appropriate and necessary to cease peer supporting.
Onsite session fee : $480
Note: Co-funding amount by HPB will remain the same for both virtual and physical session.
