Peer Support Training

Interested in becoming a facilitator, but want to learn a bit more about peer support before you sign up?


The Hand-n-Hand Peer Support Training Workshop is a 3-hour program run by Hand-n-Hand and designed in collaboration with the Black Dog Institute. These sessions are run by expert mental health practitioners from our team, and are highly interactive with a focus on scenario-based practice. They also come with a digital booklet of takeaway info.


At the moment, in-house trainings are usually run roughly once a month. The workshop lasts 3 hours.


Online via Zoom


Free! But signups are essential.

Our in-house training is offered free of charge to individuals. However, the current waitlist is long and places tend to fill up fast, so we encourage you to sign up ASAP for your best chance at securing a spot.

Click here to express interest, and we'll email you when workshops become available before they are advertised publicly. Otherwise, you can find all upcoming sessions on the Events page. We also share upcoming workshops on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Linkedin pages.
