Peer support is provided by peers, for peers. It’s a system consisting of individuals with similar experiences who encourage and assist each other on their path towards healing.
Founded on key principles such as respect and shared responsibility, peer support is based on the belief that people who have faced and overcome adversity can provide useful support and mentorship to others facing similar situations.
Canadian Funeral Peer Support provides a healthy outlet to debrief and meet other people who can relate. This allows everyone the opportunity to feel connected, validated and understood in a supportive, non-judgmental environment.
Our Mission is to be Canada’s leader in providing resources for the wellness of funeral professionals; to share our personal experiences, educate and advocate; and to foster a network of peer support groups across the country.
More than a lot of professionals, we are like a family. In our peer support family, we reach out to those who are struggling and give them the support they need. We are that brother or sister that always has your back.
Canadian Funeral Peer Support operates on a NOT-FOR-PROFIT basis and is not publicly funded. We offer free group sessions to licensed, non-licensed and retired Funeral Professionals Canada. *Disclaimer: We are not licensed therapists or counselors.
