OPSEU knows the importance of peer-to-peer support. Many of our members are frontline workers who experience traumatic events. Peer-to-peer support can provide empathy and understanding.
OPSEU members will be traveling to four northern Ontario cities to raise awareness about the critical role that peer-to-peer support plays in mental health. We will have speakers at each location who will share their experiences and highlight the invaluable work of the Boots on the Ground program.
