Compeer

Who is it for? 

Adults living with a mental health diagnosis.

How does it help?

Compeer matches adults living with a mental health diagnosis with compassionate community volunteers who provide one-to-one supportive friendship and mentoring relationships to offset the social isolation and loneliness that can accompany mental illness.

What does it look like?

Compeer matches meet virtually or face-to-face at least twice a month. Many go to a movie, have lunch, walk and talk, or enjoy other social activities together.

Wednesday Wellness Group

Wednesday Wellness Group is a bi-weekly meeting open to Compeer participants. This virtual group offers discussions on health and wellness tips and coping strategies, as well as the chance to socialize, play games, and connect with others to reduce isolation and loneliness.

SCHEDULE

Every other Wednesday, 12:30-1:30 p.m.
