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
