A Question of Care

A Question of Care (QoC) is a Peterborough-based capacity-building initiative focused on building and strengthening skills, knowledge, and awareness to address the intersections between substance use, stigma, mental illness, and trauma. QoC creates spaces for mutual learning, respectful dialogue, and fostering collaboration between community members, as well as multi-sectoral collaboration and interdisciplinary practice between professionals.

It Matters

Fear of being judged is the most common reason people in Peterborough don’t seek help. Words really matter, in moments when an individual seeks help, the response from a health or social service professional will make a huge difference in an individual’s level of engagement–both with the agency or organization, as well as their engagement with their own care. 

Upcoming Training

Receptionist at the Office

We go on auto-pilot with certain clients because their behaviour is difficult… But what we need to do is take the time to look at what is behind the behaviour and really understand what the intention is.

A Question of Care (QoC) is a local capacity-building initiative coordinated by the Peterborough Drug Strategy.
