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.

“I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of connection made in the breakout groups. People came from all different perspectives and professional backgrounds, but it felt like there was a common entity for us to connect over: the reason why we were all there”.

– Jane Mark, Patient Relations Consultant, PRHC

Even if you are familiar with the theme, there are always new things to learn, new ideas or updated research, shared tips and techniques, and the peer support is very valuable, especially working in rural communities.” – Participant
