Strengthening  families and solidifying relationships with visitations.

Our goal is to make the families stronger by building understanding with others and providing them with the support, skills and techniques to work through any situation that arises trying to break their family apart.   We try to create a safe and comforting environment for all members.


Our Certified Peer Support Specialist is someone with the lived experience of recovery from a mental health condition or has a raised a child with Mental Health . They provide support to others experiencing similar challenges. They provide non-clinical, strengths-based support and are “experientially credentialed” by their own recovery journey.


OUR PEER SUPPORT WORKERS:


  • Inspire hope that families can and do recover.
  • Walk with families on their recovery journeys.
  • Dispel myths about what it means to have a mental health condition.
  • Provide self-help education and link people to tools and resources.
  • Support people in identifying their goals, hopes, and dreams, and creating a roadmap for getting there.

 

Peer support workers can help break down barriers of experience and understanding, as well as power dynamics that may get in the way of working with other members of the Wraparound team. The peer support worker’s role is to assist people with finding and following their own recovery paths, without judgment, expectation, rules, or requirements. Peer support workers practice in a range of settings, including peer-run organizations, recovery community centers, recovery residences, drug courts and other criminal justice settings, hospital emergency departments, child welfare agencies, homeless shelters, and behavioral health and primary care settings. In addition to providing the many types of assistance encompassed in the peer support role, they conduct a variety of outreach and engagement activities.
