Peer Services

Connections in the Community

Peer services provide opportunities for recovering individuals to connect with others who have also experienced mental health or substance abuse issues. Our Peer Specialists are available to support individuals and/or their family members in dealing with mental illness. They offer understanding, education and assistance in dealing with many issues. As many recovering individuals find strength and inspiration by providing strength and inspiration to others, peer services support those with a diagnosis in creating fulfilling, productive lives.

Peer support is available individually or as part of a group.
