"When "i" is replaced by "we" even illness becomes wellness"

- Malcolm X



We provide one on one support to individuals as they work towards their personal recovery. 

In addition to being able to talk with someone who has traveled a similar journey and being able to share your struggles and successes, we offer the following: 

  • Private and safe conversation

  • Strength based approach 

  • Individualized crisis planning

  • Assistance navigating the system

  • Resources and supports

  • Mutual learning 

  • Coping skills 

  • Hope

Peer support is available in a hospital setting, transitional housing, and the community. 

Workshops & Groups 

We are excited to announce that we will soon be offering a wide variety of workshops and groups that will aim to support, educate, and empower our clients. 

Currently, we do run a family support group that runs once a month. Please visit our Family Connect page for more information. 

Transition Support Client Connect

Transitioning amongst services, both inpatient and in the community can be a time of additional stress and anxiety. Our Client connect program can support you through this process. 

Hospital to Hospital connection:

If you are transferring to a different inpatient facility, we can connect you to Peer Support services at the new facility (where available) before you go, so that you can ask questions and gather information. We will support you during this process. 


Hospital to Community connection: 

Transitioning from the hospital to the community can mean leaving behind people that have been your "family" or main supports during your stay. 


If you would like, Peer Support will stay in touch with you as you return to the community. You choose how we connect, who reaches out to you, and the frequency that you would like us to touch base. 

Social Media Connection 

While we do encourage you to connect with us in person, we do offer services and supports through social media as well. 

You are able to contact us through direct messaging on both Instagram and Facebook. 

Our Peer Support staff monitors both platforms on a regular basis and will respond to you within 24 hours. 

If you are in crisis and need immediate assistance, we urge you to call a crisis hotline and get yourself to a safe place such as your local emergency room.
