Adult and Adolescent Peer Support
The Main Link’s Peer Support team promotes community integration, wellness and recovery. Peer Specialists share their own recovery experience with others who are facing mental health challenges.
You and your Peer Specialist meet when and where it is convenient for both of you. Peer Support is a mobile service. Together you will identify goals that you would like to achieve in order to improve your quality of life and enhance your recovery journey.
Peer Specialists attend a state recognized training and are certified by the Pennsylvania Certification Board.
We also offer peer support to Teens ages 14-17. Call for more information.
Forensic Peer Support
The Main Link Forensic Peer Support Team focuses on cultivating a supportive and resourceful relationship with individuals incarcerated in our county correctional facility. The team provides weekly peer support to inmates, information about community resources and updates on issues that may be of interest to mental health consumers. Group dialogue centers on recovery, recidivism education (the revolving door), co-occurring disorder and ways to work on personal mental health recovery and goal planning. Post release services include assistance navigating the community and meeting parole and probation requirements.
