Hope, Healing, & Empowerment
Peer Support

Working together is the first step to recovery, and that's what having a peer in your corner to help each other along the way is all about. We understand the value shared experiences have in recovery, personal growth, and overall wellness.

We know what you're going through,
because we've lived it.
We're all in it together

We are here to support your mental health and total wellbeing!

We're a community non-profit organization for community based programs, outreach, and events. Our various programs help support mental health, wellbeing, and education.

Please note, we do not offer standard clinical therapy services. 

Peer support,
What is it?

Peer support encompasses a range of activities and interactions between people who share similar experiences. These can be living with mental health conditions, supporting your family with mental health conditions, substance use disorders, challenges with being an lgbtq+ individual, or a combination of those.

When I saw that other people recovered, it gave me hope that I could too.
Because of peer support I am alive!
Peer support has been there for me no matter what.

Hear from our team about
peer support!

Some of our peer program teams participated in sharing what Peer Support means to them.

Peer support is not clinical.

Peer support is not clinical care. It differs from having a therapist or doctor where there's a hierarchy and professional reservation to sharing information. A peer is someone you can relate to, talk to, be open with, and connect on real life shared experiences.

Peer Support is:

  • to inspire hope of recovery from mental health struggles and/or addiction.

  • to share lived experiences in an appropriate manner to foster connections and build relationships with peers.

  • to listen to and understand peers’ pain and isolation while exhibiting empathy and support as they move forward in recovery.

  • to assist peers in exploring options and overcoming barriers preventing them from moving forward.

  • to provide person-driven support that taps into an individual’s strengths.

Peer Support is not:

  • to provide clinical care.

  • to replace case managers.

  • to “fix” people.

  • to tell people “what to do.”

  • to force compliance.

  • to speak on behalf of a peer.

Check out our 
Peer Support Line

Sometimes you just need someone to talk to.

That's exactly why we created the free and confidential peer support line.

When you call, you're connected with one of our Peer Recovery Specialists to talk about whatever is on your mind. You can talk about your hobbies, pets, goals, or a challenge you're going through.

Open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 4pm - 8pm.
