Peer Support

What is Peer Support?

It’s connecting with another person who has lived experience of their own and can relate to what you are going through—this could be a divorce, a sick child, a difficult call, the list goes on.

This is an internal Ottawa Police Program and not open to the general public.

Social support is the proven foundation for success for people to find their path to health and wellness. However, Peer Support is not a replacement for professional medical or clinical care.
