Do you want to help us build strong, caring communities?

Do you want to use your personal experience of supporting your ill family member to support other families, significant others and friends with a loved one living with a mental illness?

Pathways is looking for compassionate and empathetic volunteers to work in the heart of our operation and 1) provide one-on-one peer support 2) facilitate our monthly support groups.

Join us for our peer support training where you will learn how to:

– communicate effectively
– set boundaries
– support others through the struggles of having a loved one living with a serious mental illness

Use your personal experience navigating B.C.’s mental health system and supporting your loved one to give the gifts of hope and compassion to others in a similar position.


Peer support training is currently being scheduled according to numbers registered.
