The PeerLINKS Program
PeerLINKS is a free, confidential program designed for individuals who need help connecting to behavioral health treatment (mental health and/or substance use), resources or rebuilding their support network. Our goal is to work in partnership with you to Link you with behavioral health services and community resources, while INcreasing your Knowledge and providing Support. We share messages of hope as we model recovery by offering you support to utilize your strengths to work toward your goals. We also coordinate care and offer help with obtaining benefits.
Is PeerLINKS Right for You?
Our approach is to meet you where you are in your recovery, work to support your goals and preferences, and empower you to actively participate in your recovery.
We believe that everyone has their own strengths and abilities to help them build their path to their own recovery. It is our vision to support your goals and to inspire hope on your journey to meeting your mental health and co-occurring needs. Our program is open to all people no matter where you are in your process of healing or on your pathway to recovery. We support individuals of all races, genders and backgrounds. We strive to help you develop a unique plan tailored to your personal preferences and strengths by sharing our message of hope while offering community information, assistance with navigating resources and help obtaining benefits. It is our intention to awaken moments of optimism and happiness in order to assist you in creating a valuable plan which will make a difference in your future. We are stronger together.
