Peer Support Group

Confidential peer support to help bridge the gap between you and a qualified mental health specialist.

Newly established in 2020, the Peer Support Team consists of your fellow brothers and sisters that have volunteered to support you during your challenging times. All members of the Peer Support Team are trained in recognizing the signs and symptoms of stress injury and they have an in-depth knowledge of the resources currently available for assistance.

Often, we think we are alone, but that is far from the truth. Only those that have gone through the struggles you may be enduring now will be able to truly relate to what you are experiencing. If you are experiencing any behavioral health issues. Please reach out to one of the Peer Support Team members to help navigate you through your difficult time.
