As a peer driven organization, it is the mission of Monadnock Peer Support to promote wellness and recovery, as defined by the individual, through intentional peer support, and to provide advocacy, educational, vocational, interpersonal, social, and spiritual opportunities to adults who utilize mental health services to learn wellness strategies, develop mutually beneficial relationships, and to support each other in attaining increased capacities for self-determination, independence, and personal growth.
The community, in conjunction with the Board of Directors, generates all rules, policy and direction with equal consideration given to the input of all members. We emphasize understanding, mutual accountability and respect for diversity in relationships. We offer groups, activities and events in which we learn more about ourselves, and how we interact with others. We utilize shared leadership, skill development, team activities, and a holistic model of health to make these groups and events a valuable opportunity for growth and strength.
Our programs are grounded in the principles of Intentional Peer Support
Personal responsibility and accountability
Respecting other's thoughts and beliefs as valid and important
Growth beyond the stigma, shame and limits have placed upon us
Creating and maintaining a strong, active voice and presence dedicated to social change
Through this presence we can increase understanding and decrease oppression outside of our community

About Monadnock Peer Support
Monadnock Peer Support was founded in 1995 as an alternative that compliments and supplements the traditional mental health system. We are a member-driven organization that provides opportunities for people who experience mental health to support one another in moving towards what we want in life as opposed to away from what we don’t want. We also establish a culture in which our members and participants feel more empowered and less dependent on traditional mental health care.
Our organization has earned a Gold Seal of Transparency since 2021! Now, everyone can view our financial details and learn about the people at our organization. Check out our updated #NonprofitProfile on Candid, by clicking the icon above!
