Teen Peer Support Group

What is a Teen Peer Support Group?

The Teen Peer Support Group provides a safe and supportive environment for high school students with mental health concerns. They may have their own concern or be concerned about a family member or a friend. Participants do not need a mental health diagnosis to attend. The support group provides a chance to learn coping skills, build resiliency, and connect and socialize with peers experiencing similar struggles. Two trained facilitators lead each group and new participants are welcome at any time. A free snack is provided.

What are the goals of the Teen Peer Support Group?

  • Provide opportunities to increase knowledge about symptoms and treatments.

  • Give chances to learn the skills that will help participants cope with mental illness in school, community, and home.

  • Opportunities for non-judgmental social support.

  • Supply information about available community resources.

  • Provide support and encouragement to each other.
