Peer Support Services

Volunteer Peer Supporters are available to meet with peers, please call Rachel Watts at 507-316-0963 or email at to schedule an intake appointment.

Volunteer Peer Supporters have made significant progress in their own mental illness recovery. They use personal experience to model wellness, hope, self-advocacy and responsibility.

Here are some of the ways Volunteer Peer Supporters can help:

  • Identify strengths, abilities and assets in order to reach goals

  • Develop recovery and wellness goals

  • Connect to local resources


**Volunteer Peer Supporters are not certified through the State of MN**
