Compeer – Volunteers Needed

Compeer hands

Loneliness and isolation is what many people experience while living with mental illness. Having the support of a friend can help improve feeling understood, cared about, and can even increase self-esteem!

MHA’s compeer service provides adults with one to one supportive friendships. The premise to the Compeer Program is that friendships builds self-esteem and improves the ability to cope with life’s stresses.
