Identifying, mentoring, and training diverse leaders to create peer-led environments where it is “okay to not be okay” and where individuals can come together with others on similar journeys in order to build a sense of "chosen family" while remembering that there is hope and that they are not alone on their journey to recovery.
Changing the culture surrounding mental wellness and recovery by creating events and promoting self-determination of expansive wellness routes that de-stigmatize mental health, normalize help-seeking, provide education and results in a healthier community through peer support.
Certified Recovery Peer Specialists are bridging important gaps. They provide an affordable and approachable option to mental wellness that prevents crisis and sustains wellness following crisis. By not providing support for our community before and after crisis we are sending people through a "revolving door" mental health system otherwise.
Peer Support Space Inc. is a grassroots organization, led by and for those in recovery from mental illness, substance abuse, trauma, grief or other obstacles to wellness.
