Whether you are new to peer support, or you have been working with peer support workers for some time, this toolkit is designed to address an often-forgotten aspect of peer work: effective supervision. This toolkit is aimed at helping people who are supervising and implementing peer roles to better understand peer support and its unique value proposition for mental health and addiction agencies so that they can support peer workers in unlocking the potential of this nascent profession in our communities.
