The Gathering Place has on staff 4 highly qualified Certified Peer Specialists and 2 Recovery Coaches who provide peer support individually and in a group setting. A Certified Peer Specialist is an individual with lived experience of mental illness who has taken a 40 hour training and passed a State exam to become certified in peer mentoring. They are required to have continuing educational units each year to keep up-to-date on mental health treatment. A Recovery Coach has received a state recognized training to become qualified to give support, mentor and advocate for their peers who have addictions to alcohol or drugs. Plan to connect with one of our staff as they are great resources to have!

Individual Support

We highly recommend our members to have a one-on-one peer mentoring session with one of our Certified Peer Specialists or Recovery Coaches.


Be Among Peers

Not comfortable with an individual session? That is ok. We also offer peer support in a group setting. This is a perfect way to give and receive support from peers.
