Good medicine: Peer support for people of Indigenous heritage

Join this webinar, presented by Ontario Peer Development Initiative. This is a brief introduction of one model of how Peer Support and Traditional Indigenous healing can work together to enhance and expand the healing and wellness for People of Indigenous Heritage. It is meant to give people, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, a glance in one way to support peers of Indigenous using peer support. It is one way of to open up the lines of communication.

It is not just meant for Indigenous people but for their allies as well. It allows everyone to connect and expand their horizons. We hope this webinar will allow participants to open up to new choices and option. It is also hoped this workshop will open up dialogues and build capacity.
