Peer Support

Offers support to individuals impacted by mental illness who require help in resolving issues or concerns they may have in dealing with areas of their daily lives such as: income assistance applications and appeals, government and agency forms and requirements, tenancy issues, making appointments, finding information, financial matters such as bill payments or outstanding debt, or connecting to services.  This is by no means an exhaustive list, as we attempt to assist individuals with all their needs as best we can, either directly or through referral.

This is an open referral service, with anyone welcome to make inquiries to Wisdom or call 250-981-0524
