Peer Support Workers provide individual and group support for their peers. You can talk to them about a variety of topics such as feeling isolated, help with getting medical benefits, information about health related topics, substance abuse support or any other areas that you want addressed. Our services complement the clinical support offered by licensed professionals. Because of our lived experience, we are uniquely qualified to offer support, encouragement, and hope to our peers.
This a referral based service that you receive from your mental health provider. Peer services are offered at the following County clinics: Sunnyvale Fairoaks Clinic, Central Wellness and Benefits Clinic, Downtown Mental Health Clinic and Narvaez Clinic. If you are not a client at the above clinics, you may receive peer support services at one of our Self Help Centers.
