Introducing Peer Support Follow-up Services

We are now offering peer support services to young people following their Foundry Virtual counselling appointments.

What can I expect?

  • A peer supporter check-in session can be made within a few days of your Foundry Virtual counselling appointment.
  • Sessions are booked as one-time appointments and will be approximately 45 minutes in length.
  • Sessions will be booked after your counselling appointment if you decide you want to connect with a peer supporter.
  • These follow-up sessions are the first peer support service we are offering. Stay tuned for announcements of additional offerings, including peer support groups and additional one-on-one services, coming soon.

What is peer support?

  • A peer supporter is a trained support worker who is close to your age and has personal experience with some of the challenges you may be experiencing.
  • A peer supporter recognizes you as an expert in your own life and will work collaboratively with you on your goals.
