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. Compeer volunteers make a minimum one year commitment to the friendship.

MHA’s program is an affiliate of Compeer International, a best practice model.

Compeer Wellness Group

Compeer’s Wellness Group is a monthly meeting open to Compeer participants. This group gathers in-peron or virtually and 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.


Third Thursday of the month from 3:30-4:30 p.m.
