Compeer of Lebanon County understands the value of friendship and we realize the importance one person can make in the life of someone recovering from a mental health challenge. A supportive and mutual friendship provides additional and natural support before, during and after traditional therapy. We facilitate friendships that can restore the joy and hope that is oftentimes lost while battling mental health challenges.
The Compeer model is based on the understanding that a supportive and caring friend can have a positive influence on an individual’s mental health. We support mental wellness by connecting someone living with a mental health challenge with a caring friend. Compeer’s community-based programs serve youth, adults, and Veterans, through volunteer mentoring and supportive friendship programs. Our programs are measured annually and consistently show improvements in an individual’s self-esteem, social skills, community engagement, and overall quality of life.
