What is Peer Support?
Peer support offers a relationship unlike any other. Through their own lived experiences, peers can offer a level of understanding and acceptance often absent from other treatment and support environments.
What are the benefits?
The peer relationship offers non-clinical support using a strength-based approach. Peer support does not try to replace clinical treatments, instead it works as a supplement to treatments, and assists in breaking down barriers that may be contributing to stress and imbalance. Peers work together to create unique wellness goals that work for each individual. The peer relationship inspires hope and shows people that creating and maintaining wellbeing is possible. By offering relationships built on mutual trust and respect Peer support can help:
- Promote health and wellness
- Decrease impacts of stigma
- Promote empowerment
- Increase sense of control
- Increase social support
We provide connections to a wide range of community supports that are often overlooked by those under stress. This connection can help promote a sense of community support. By offering a judgement-free environment, peers support can help empower others to begin or strengthen their path to wellness and balance.
We are not a crisis support hotline. If you or someone you know is in immediate danger of harming themselves or if you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
