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, 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!
A non-judgmental ear to listen, and be a partner in developing strengths and wellness
A safe space for adults facing obstacles as they navigate their mental health recovery
Targeted support for those facing the challenges of caring for, or loving someone with mental health needs
Self-help groups are Peer run groups that consist of individuals who come together to address a common issue or condition.
