Mental health recovery support from someone who’s walked a mile in your shoes. That’s Peer Support.
What is Peer Support?
Sometimes, two people who have lived through the same experiences can give each other the kind of practical and emotional support they cannot find anywhere else. It’s the kind of support that says, “I truly understand.” Peer Support is a growing movement in mental health recovery that trains everyday people—not just mental health professionals— to give this support. With Peer Support, if you’re struggling, you can connect with someone who gets it—because they’ve been there.
