Mission Statement

By working in a peer-to-peer collabortive partnership, we provide hope, support, and assistance to help our peers achieve individual goals and objectives, while fostering recovery in a community environment.


By partnering with experienced peers, individuals living with mental illness receive support to actively engage in their recovery.

Our Peer services program is staffed with individuals who have lived with mental illness in their own lives. They serve as role models and advocates for other mental health consumers.

Each peer support worker receives training and is tested on their skills. They are people who want to help others succeed, offering encouragement and hope along the road to recovery.  


Peer Support Services will:

  • Listen to an individual's current concerns and hopes for the future.
  • Help develop those hopes into recovery goals and create an individual recovery plan.
  • Support individuals to put their recovery plan into action by ensuring they have the right tools in their recovery toolbox, including connections to natural supports and referrals to social and vocational rehabilitation programs.


Who can receive Peer Support services?

Anyone with a mental health Diagnosis who is willing to take steps toward recovery is encouraged to use these services.

Eligibility is open to those who want to reduce frequency and duration of hospitalization, learn self-advocacy skills, strengthen their independence, and take steps to improve their quality of life.

Individuals agree fully that Peer Support Services will help in their Recovery.
