The Mental Health Peer Coordinator program was developed to reduce Indigenous recidivism in the justice system and improve Indigenous mental health and well-being. The program will facilitate the development of networks of peers with lived experience with the justice system and with mental health and/or addictions concerns, who can work together to achieve a Good Mind.
The Coordinator will facilitate mentorships for urban Indigenous individuals as they exit incarceration and ensure that individuals are offered ongoing supports including assistance to attain stable housing, employment and other social supports. Together the peer mentors will form a network capable of conducting talking and sharing circles at the Friendship Centre, lead discussions on life journeys and offer one to one informal peer counselling support. The coordinator will facilitate access to on-going cultural supports and activities.
Application includes: Cover letter, Resume and three references
