Peer support is an important aspect of recovery for persons with mental illness. A Peer led support group brings people together who have similar experiences. Meetings are confidential, informal, non-judgmental, and are geared to stimulate discussion and sharing of concerns. Joining a support group is a valuable addition to, but not in place of, professional treatment. Support groups can help you feel less alone by making connections with others and get you motivated to stick to your treatment plan.
