Are you needing someone to talk to and listen? Peer support allows people to ask questions and explore their feelings in a confidential, non-judgmental environment in the company of those who have been through similar situations and experiences. Volunteers, practicum students, and OUTSaskatoon employees are available to chat with anyone who drops in and/or phones our centre. Peer supporters will listen, refer when necessary, and will provide information. We also offer a range of support & social groups that are peer led that we encourage you to attend.
