Peer Support

The Peer Support Services program provides one-to-one help for adults living with mental illness.  Peer support workers, who have all experienced mental illness and are currently working on their own recovery, assist clients in getting to know Portland, as well as providing support, socialization, recreation, and access to resources.  Peer support workers help clients feel more comfortable with their skills so that they can use resources more independently.  All peer support workers receive training and supervision to help them be successful in this challenging position.  Service is typically provided two to four hours per week.  Peer support is client-driven with goals and objectives individually determined.
