Peer support services connect people in recovery from mental health and/or substance use challenges with individuals still working on getting well. Peer support specialists have walked a mile in their shoes, so to speak, and are able to offer guidance and support from the perspective of someone who has overcome similar experiences.
All support groups are facilitated by peers who have faced the challenge that the support group addresses. A mental health diagnosis is not required to attend. No pre-registration required.
Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) Courses
Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) is an evidence-based recovery course that supports people experiencing high levels of stress and other personal challenges. WRAP is beneficial to anyone experiencing any kind of challenge, from a physical condition such as diabetes, to a mental health condition like depression, and everything in between.
One-on-One Peer Mentoring
Peer mentoring provides support, assistance in maintaining recovery, and shared problem-solving, with staff available to assist and provide connection to treatments and resources when needed. Trained peer support specialists assist community members with developing problem-solving skills, setting personal recovery goals, identifying and combating negative self-talk, building social supports, and learning how to self-advocate.
Peer mentoring is available prior to or after attending a Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) course. Contact us if you are interested in being matched with a peer support specialist.
