A TRAUMA-INFORMED MODEL

Give an Hour’s Trauma-Informed Peer Support is an evidence-informed and customizable peer support training program designed specifically for those affected by trauma.

It’s important to note that peer supporters are not licensed mental health clinicians. At Give an Hour we believe including peer support in our mental health resources offers a person centered and additional option for support.

Peer support is the process of giving and receiving encouragement and assistance to achieve long-term resilience and recovery. Peer supporters offer emotional support, share knowledge, teach skills, provide practical assistance, and connect people with resources, opportunities, and communities of support.

Give an Hour trained peer supporters offer their unique lived experience to provide support focused on advocacy, education, mentoring, and motivation. Peer supporters receive training and guidance from a team that includes facilitators and mental health professionals.

Peer Support Groups

Peer led support groups offer a space for you to connect, share experiences and receive guidance in an environment that nurtures your wellbeing.

Peer Supporter Training (TIPS)

GAH-trained peer supporters offer their unique lived experience to provide support focused on advocacy, education, mentoring, and motivation for a group of peers who have experienced similar trauma.
