Our mission is to provide a safe, stigma-free environment where mental health peers can have the opportunity to interact with companion animals as well as participate in various activities that promote healthy mental hygiene. The vision of Rise Phoenix Rise is to share the benefits of rescued animals with those struggling with mental illness. Rescued animals are magical healers who will be beneficial to the mental health community. Together the companion animals and the mental health peers can "rise from the ashes" of their struggles into wellness.
Established in late 2015, RPR aims to help the mental health community raise self-efficacy, self-esteem, self-confidence, and resilience. We employ modalities to include animal-assisted activities, art expression, support groups, one-to-one support, education for the public, and we are developing a job skills readiness program. We cater to adults with a mental health or substance use history.
