lead by people with first hand knowledge of and life experience with mental illness
issues. If you are interested in Support Group Therapy, please e-mail or call us at

Peer Support is gaining momentum in the mental health world. There is value in being with and talking to other people who have
walked in your steps and who understand what you're going through. There are no misconceptions or judgements to deal with.
Just caring, sharing, and supporting because they know how lonely it can be, too. I believe that it is our duty to humanity once
we've walked through the forest to turn back and guide others in need.
