This session explores who peers are, where they can be found, and in what ways they can support someone. The session explains how peers can help someone feel heard and accepted, help solve problems, and help someone explore new options and see new possibilities. Participants will learn:

  • What a peer is and is not
  • How someone might benefit from peer support
  • Where to find peers or how to identify people already in your life who may be peers

All workshops are free; there is no cost to attend. Workshops are intended for individuals who self-identify as having a disability, mental health condition, and/or chronic health condition (rather than family members or service providers). Attendees must live in one of the 8 eastern Iowa counties we serve (Johnson, Linn, Washington, Benton, Cedar, Jones, Henry, or Iowa county).

This is a hybrid workshop. That means participants are welcome to attend in-person OR  online. Advanced registration is required for all participants regardless of attendance format.
