Community Peer Support
The focus of a Community Mentor us to assist people in understanding how successful achievement of their Activities of Daily Living can positively affect their goals of recovery.
Community Mentors help people to recognize areas in their day-to-day lives that they would like to see different and assist in identifying and establishing the task-based goals that would support these changes. Community Mentors work with people to assist in developing and strengthening their independent living skills (ADLs) through collaborative, hands-on, task-based rehabilitation and recovery plans, and they follow up with the motivation that will empower people to make positive changes in their lives.
A Community Mentor’s goal is for participants to have the skills they need to live to their utmost potential within the community and to more successfully avoid crisis.
