Intentional Peer Support (IPS) is a way of thinking about and inviting powerful, transformative relationships. Peer workers learn to use relationships to see things from new angles, develop greater awareness of personal and relational patterns, and support and challenge each other in trying new things.
IPS is an exciting approach and works to broaden the lens to support and enhance localised models of peer support. For nearly twenty years, IPS has been inspiring and training people in community, peer support, and human services settings all over the world to be intentional about the way they connect and build mutual relationships. IPS has been widely used as a foundation training for people working in both traditional and alternative mental health settings.

Core Training (5 days)
Core training is an extensive overview of the IPS framework and is designed to have you practicing right away. In a highly interactive environment, participants learn the IPS tasks and principles, examine assumptions about who they are, and explore ways to create mutual relationships where power is negotiation, co learning is possible, and support goes beyond traditional notions of ‘service’.
