Mission Statement

We at Peer Wellness and Recovery Services (PWRS) recognize that peer support is a vital - yet frequently overlooked and underused - tool in the behavioral health field. We maintain the principle that the understanding, guidance, and encouragement of peers, individuals who have lived with mental health and/or substance use issues, are invaluable for others seeking to cope with and transcend similar conditions. To this end, PWRS promotes peer services through advocacy, outreach, education, and consulting, and is active in design and implementation of new peer support programming.


A small, young organization that offers peer-led services to adults with mental health and/or substance use challenges, in a variety of settings - we travel to you. We offer classes, workshops and trainings addressing mental and physical health, creativity, employment, benefits counseling..,. pro bono, contract services and some fee for service recovery and employment support coaching.

Offerings: WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Planning) groups and facilitator training, CCAR recovery coach academy, NAMI support groups, consulting to agencies providing behavioral health services. Innovative programming and partnerships are our passion.
