The Compeer Program encourages individuals with a mental health diagnosis to build self-confidence, self-reliance, and healthy relationships by involving them in one-to-one friendships, innovative programs, and regular social contact. The Compeer Program is designed to help reduce the isolation and the feelings of loneliness experienced by many of our participants. Our goal at Compeer is to provide companionship, friendship, and the needed support system to help individuals feel more connected to the community. Participants are referred into the Compeer Program by their therapists, counselors, or case managers.
“It provides an outlet for the mentally ill, who would otherwise be homebound and motivation for people who would otherwise have nothing. It also helps build confidence, as well as provide structure in our daily lives.” – Steve
