Peer to Peer Connect

Welcome to Peer to Peer Connect: a way for you to partner with another family physician, one-to-one or in a small group, for support as you explore clinical complexity and increase your confidence caring for patients with mental health challenges, substance use, and chronic pain. A focus can be on your well-being as you engage in this challenging work.

Want to Connect? Join Now

Practising Well is here to help you learn and has been designed to provide educational support to family physicians at all stages of their career across Ontario. It is not a clinical consultation support for specific patients. 

Become a Peer Guide

We’re looking for family physicians to be Peer Guides and share their experience and expertise in mental health, substance use disorder and/or chronic pain with their colleagues. 

As a Peer Guide (formerly known as Mentors), you’re the foundation of a program to support practical and relevant implementation of learning in primary care.
