From Wellness in the Woods
The Virtual Peer Support Network, or VPSN was designed with the intent to decrease isolation in an all-inclusive, non-judgmental, and safe environment. This program was created in 2020 as a response to COVID as a way for those seeking to connect and feel supported while social distancing.
The VPSN community is hosted on ZOOM by a team of Certified Peer Support Specialists who are able to use their own life experiences to help others who share similar mental health challenges.
Their programs consists of several different activities including:
- WRAP, Mental Health/Recovery Topics
- Skills Development: Independent Living
- LGBTQ+ Support
- Health & Nutrition
- Spanish, Swahili, and Somali Speaking Support
- Mindfulness & Meditation
- Creative Arts
- Games, Book Club & Cooking
Keep up to date with VPSN activities, sessions and Zoom meetings! Peer Support Specialists have a lot in store so don’t miss out each month!
