What We Do / Veteran Peer Support
What is Veteran Peer Support?
A peer is someone who has lived through shared experience such as mental illness or addiction. This experience is paired with formal training to offer services to support long-term recovery.
What does a Peer Support Lifer do?
Our Veteran Peers support recovery from mental health disorders and substance/alcohol abuse to improve overall health and wellness, live a self directed life, and strive to reach their full potential (SAMHSA, 2014).

- Seeks to motivate through experience, strength, and hope (does not motivate via fear or negative consequences)
-Supports many ways to recovery and healing (no focused on only one program or path)
-Helps find community resources, professional resources, and basic necessities (does not case manage or provide these services)
