Peer Support and Recovery Mentors

The Pursuit of Wellness is passionate about including the voices, stories, input, and valuable lived experiences of peer support specialists (PSS) and certified recovery mentors (CRM) in mental health services. We are building a team of amazing peers and recovery mentors, supervised by Nautilus Torello, PSS. Peer-delivered services have been around for decades, and continue to gain traction as more and more folx recognize its powerful impact on mental wellness and recovery (both from substance use and mental health challenges). Peers are people who identify as having personal mental health and/or recovery stories who come alongside others on their own journeys toward increased wellness. Check out the Oregon Health Authority's website to learn more.

 

Although therapy and peer support can supplement each other beautifully, you do not need to be enrolled in therapy at TPOW (or at all) to receive peer support here. For OHP members, peer services are free. For all others, the cost is $30 per hour for groups and/or individual peer support. Please contact Nautilus or Jen to get started. Scroll down to meet the peer team.
