information provided by: Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services
Peers Envisioning and Engaging in Recovery Services, PEERS, is a consumer-run, non-profit organization that advocates for mental health consumers on every level of the mental health system. We are the Alameda County authority on Mary Ellen Copeland’s wellness and recovery model. We offer weekly Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP) groups in both English and Spanish at various locations throughout Alameda County, as well as monthly WRAP orientations and regular WRAP trainings. We administrate a scholarship program to send mental health consumers to various conferences, organize participation in Telling Our Stories and other trainings, sponsor and help organize mental health conferences, and advocate for social inclusion throughout the county. PEERS is dedicated to the recovery and wellness of peers experiencing mental health challenges and co-occurring (dual diagnosis) challenges, their families, and the community systems that serve them. PEERS focuses on training methodologies and best practices to teach, support, and implement the recovery vision for people living and working with behavioral health issues. See our calendar for upcoming groups and events.
Our weekly WRAP groups are free and open to the public.
Participants are free to start attending our open groups at any time. Simply show up for any group or call us at 510-832-7337 for more information.
