Researching for LGBTQ Health

PEERS is Hiring for Four Positions

New Closing Date: October 16, 2017!

Posted: September 26, 2017

Peers Examining Experiences in Research Study (PEERS) is a community-based project that aims to understand how peer researchers experience their involvement in research with four different communities: consumer/survivor/mental health service user communities; communities of people who use drugs; racialized communities; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) communities. We hope to learn about what research practices can best support meaningful involvement of peer researchers, within and across these four communities.
