Pay What You Can Peer Support is a non-profit organization born out of a desire to have
low barrier mental support available to whomever needs it. PWYCPS offers online, peer support groups that span a broad variety of topics, from specific diagnoses to more general issues that people often struggle with. Humans crave connection and that is getting harder to find. Pay What You Can Peer Support connects you with others who can relate, from the comfort of your home.
Our mission is simple. To offer this service to as many people around the world as we can. To increase the amount of groups we offer, to find great new moderators who believe in what we're doing, and to continuously work to get the word out to those can benefit from knowing they're not the only one, that they're not alone.
Founder and Executive Director
Daniel founded Pay What You Can Peer Support in 2020.
He had experienced the powerful impact of a mental health peer support group
for OCD and felt strongly that this option should be available to everyone
regardless of whether or not they could afford it. With this model,
participants have the chance to experience the group and then evaluate it
and 'pay what they can'. Daniel lives in Toronto with his dog April and works tirelessly
to grow PWYCPS. More about his story can be found here

Kaili graduated with a degree in therapeutic recreation in 2009
and began her career supporting children who wrestled with
mental health disorders. From a young age, she volunteered in the world of
philanthropy participating in her family's foundation, The Bridle Bash Foundation.
After working on the front lines for a few years, she noticed a severe lack of
funding toward the mental, physical and emotional wellness of children.
This is when when she decided to transition her career path and utilize her
background in philanthropy to make a larger impact. She knew that without
funding, support and resources would not be possible. Fundraising is the life
force behind every nonprofit organization. When Kaili heard about
Pay What You Can Peer Support, she knew instantly that she wanted to get involved to drive this worthy cause forward
