The Heartland Family Service Peer Support is a peer drop-in center, run by peer support staff, for anyone with a mental health diagnosis.

The Peer Center staff member is a person with lived experience with a mental health diagnosis who has reached a level of recovery and can provide engagement, encouragement, education, and input into helping others manage their lives. Peer Support employees run the day-to-day functions at the Peer Center, offering individual and group sessions/opportunities.
