What is peer support, and how does it differ from individual therapy?
Our peer support specialists are not therapists who diagnose and treat mental illness. Instead, peers are individuals with lived expertise and specialized training in supporting others.
Peer support is a mutual partnership in which both parties learn and grow rather than a relationship between a professional and a client.
Meetings with peers often occur in the community (coffee shops, parks, libraries, etc.) rather than in a therapy office.
Grounded in Lived Expertise
Peers have a wide variety of lived experiences. This may include being diagnosed with a mental illness, navigating community resources, managing substance use challenges, and much more.
