Yes, there are similar programs available in both Canada and the USA. Peer Supported Open Dialogue is an approach to mental health care that involves a team of people, including professionals, peers, and family members, working together to provide support to individuals experiencing a mental health crisis.Okay, so let's change directions. In the UK they have something called Peer Supported Open Dialogue. Is there anything similar in Canada or the USA?
Yes, I understand that there is a distinct difference between Peer Support and Peer Supported Open Dialogue. Peer Support programs generally provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals to share their experiences and struggles with peers who have had similar experiences. Peer support works to provide a sense of belonging, validation, and hope to individuals with lived experience of mental health challenges.Understood. I am looking specifically for Peer Support and Open Dialogue combined. Are you aware of the difference in Peer Supported Open Dialogue and just Peer Support? The two are different practices.

Although they provide an excellent Peer Support training program, they do not supply Open Dialogue training for Peer Supporters.
I am looking specifically for Open Dialogue training for Peer Supporters who are already certified as Peer Supporters. You are supplying me with links for Peer Support training, which I am not looking for.
No, I believe Peer Supporters would need to be trained in Open Dialogue. Thank you anyway.some mental health organizations and facilities may incorporate peer supporters as part of their Open Dialogue teams.
You're right, peer supporters would indeed need specific training in Open Dialogue practices to be able to support individuals involved in this type of care. Unfortunately, I am not aware of any specific training programs that combine peer support and Open Dialogue practices for peer supporters. Still, it is worth checking with local mental health organizations or facilities to see if they provide such training or if they work with peer supporters in their Open Dialogue teams.No, I believe Peer Supporters would need to be trained in Open Dialogue. Thank you anyway.
