PartnerSPEAK’s peer support team uses the Intentional Peer Support Framework. We strive to integrate the IPS Framework into every facet of the work we do.
IPS was founded by Shery Mead. Traditionally used worldwide in mental health settings, IPS is now found in many peer support settings, community services, and community development spaces.
The IPS Approach begins with the premise that the relationship is viewed as a partnership that is founded on: connection, mutuality, building a trauma-informed response, and creating dialogue and space to hear and reflect on how we have come to know what we know. The culmination of this relational space supports us to learn, challenge and grow together. Through this process we co-create a shared vision of where we are individually and relationally moving towards.
