Self-Help Connection engaged in a PeerSEN pilot project in collaboration with the Schizophrenia Society of Nova Scotia (SSNS). In the Summer of 2017 individuals identified as current and prospective peer support workers and self-help group facilitators engaged in workshops to support their individual and group wellbeing.

SHC reviewed this pilot project, in conjunction with information regarding readiness and buy-in from community agencies employing peer support workers. Upon this review, SHC determined that a community-based approach, rather than agency-specific approach, to workplace wellness would be a more effective and efficient approach.
