Peer Support Program
Building on the success of the senior peer counseling model from the Center for Healthy Aging in Santa Monica, California, the Peer Support Program is available to TAY (Transitional-Aged Youth) ages 16-25 and seniors (>60 years) within the Tri-City service area. Volunteer counselors receive specialized training and on-going weekly supervision and support from TCMHC clinical staff members. These volunteers meet individually with counselees and/or in groups to provide support. Groups focus on providing support and creating opportunities for members to engage in projects that serve their communities and other wellness activities.
Potential recipients of these peer support services are referred in any number of ways, including through Tri-City Staff, area schools and colleges, faith-based organizations, and other community agencies or organizations.
