Peer Support Volunteer*
Peer Supporters are people who have a lived experience with a mental illness and are now in recovery. They understand a lot about mental health because they have been there themselves. Peer Support is based on empowering individuals to take the lead on cultivating their own mental health recovery. Peer Support is about health and ability, not illness and disability. Peer relationships are built around a mutual understanding and trust, and are designed to be a compliment to traditional clinical care programs and not to replace them.
