We believe that no one should travel their mental health journey alone and that peers have a unique ability to support that journey.
What is a peer? A peer is someone who has a lived experience that they share with others who have had similar experiences. Peer support is what make MHA in Putnam unique. We have historically been staffed by people with their own lived mental health experiences as we believe that is a unique lens that forms a strong bond with others who have had similar experiences, “walked in my shoes”.In recent years, peer support has been recognized as a critical component for healing and growth.We have been proud to expand our peer support services to include adults, youth, Veterans, law enforcement, first responders, and family members.Share your story with us….we’ve been there and we care.
It’s a safe place to go where you can be yourself and not worry about things you usually would!
