Peer Support Services by Mind Springs Health

Connections in the Community

Peer services provide opportunities for recovering individuals to connect with others who have also experienced mental health or substance abuse issues. Our Peer Specialists are available to support individuals and/or their family members in dealing with mental illness. They offer understanding, education and assistance in dealing with many issues.

Peer support is available individually or as part of a group. Please check the schedule below to find a peer support group near you, or ask your Mind Springs Health clinician how working with a peer might support your recovery.
