Session 2 of 5 in the "Creating Safe Spaces for Peer Support Providers" Series (View series main page for full details)


This learning series asks: How can we create spaces where all peer professionals feel safe? How do we support Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) peers and implement anti-racist practices within peer support?  


In Session 2, join us in collaboration with facilitator Evelyn Clark, and peer support specialists Alex Ferguson, Danny Leonard, and Shaun Worthy who will all speak to creating safe spaces for peer support providers within agencies. This affinity group opens opportunities to discuss ongoing support, career paths, anti-racist practices, and how BIPOC peers can navigate the field. It will also offer a space to learn from other peer specialists.



Learning Goals

  1. Create specific avenues for peers who identify as BIPOC
  2. Implement ant-racist strategies within peer support delivery
  3. Identify career paths for peer specialists




Peer support agencies and peer specialists who identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of color who work in mental health and cross-systems. We also welcome allies and other roles to help support the BIPOC peer workforce.
