Peer Support Mentoring

mentoring.jpg

The Mentoring Program consists of peer mental health consumers and/or family members who have experience dealing with the effects of mental illness. They model that treatment works, recovery is possible, there is hope and people are not alone. Mentors listen and empathize and connect people to valuable education and support programs and to other community resources. Mentors empower others to move forward along the path of recovery.

Mentors provide:

  • A listening ear
  • Problem solving ideas
  • Information on free education and support classes
  • Aid in building support networks
  • Advocacy for consumers and families

Mentors help empower others to set goals, rebuild their lives, and live their dreams.

We are here to help YOU!

"I have finally found a place to go where people accept me for who I am and don't judge me." --Andrea
