Lived Experience and Recovery Network (LERN) is a networking body linking, supporting and educating all mental health consumer and family organizations in the northeast region.


LERN helps to build the capacity of local and regional organizations that are led by people living with mental health problems and illnesses, ensuring their voices are heard. Some of the many ways LERN provides support to member organizations include regional meetings that include representatives from across the Northeast region of Ontario.  This is a valuable opportunity for peer led organizations to network with other groups. LERN provides information to member organizations promoting learning and training opportunities across the region.

Have Your Say

At our last board meeting we began a review and discussion of LERN's strategic goals. We have a working draft of these goals and we want to hear your thoughts.

We want to know - are we on the right track? Are we meeting your needs? Find out here! We value your input.

The Elephant in the Room (EITR) continues to be offered across the region!  The EITR is an anti stigma campaign developed by Mood Disorders Society of Canada.  LERN is an official partner of this campaign and we are pleased to be able to bring the Elephant in the Room to communities across the northeast.
