Compeer recruits, screens and matches trained volunteers and mentors in one-to-one supportive relationships with individuals who are striving for good mental health. Compeer volunteers provide support, friendship and mentoring during an individual’s recovery process. These services are considered an additional support to traditional mental health services.
Types of Programs
The Compeer Model matches trained volunteers with one individual in mental health recovery. These one-to-one relationships are the foundation for all Compeer affiliates. However, each affiliate also offers other programs that expand Compeer’s mission of decreasing the sense of loneliness and isolation that an individual with a mental health diagnosis can experience.
At Compeer, we know the healing power of friendship and seek to offer that “medicine” in various ways. To volunteer with one of these programs, please contact the affiliate closest to you.
