Victoria Welle

Peer to peer support, training, and advocacy at the intersections of spirituality, justice, and healing.

What I Do


I offer a variety of trainings for workplaces, congregations, and communities wanting to be more welcoming of people with trauma histories. Topics include creating trauma-informed spaces, supporting people in crisis, and how to effectively integrate spirituality and mental health support.


I regularly consult on program design, curriculum development, and best practices for peer to peer support. I have direct experience developing and operating a peer run crisis respite led by and for people with mental health, trauma, and substance use histories.


I draw on my work in grassroots activism to advocate for the rights of people with psychiatric histories. As a psychiatric survivor, my lived experience gives a necessary perspective on policies and laws that directly impacts people’s rights and dignity in the psychiatric system.


“One of the best break out sessions I have ever attended at any conference… greatly appreciate your inclusive approach.”


“…[Vic] gave me personal insights into my own work as an individual with a mental health condition and a survivor.”  


“A lot of different ideas and ways to thinking about spirituality. I appreciate how inclusive and respectful of all beliefs this workshop was.”
