The DBSA Peer Leadership Center is a community where peer supporters can connect with information, training, education, and most importantly, each other.

Within this community, there are a number of ways that peers can connect with one another.

  • Peer supporters and peer specialists will be able to search* for other individuals who have also created a profile by location, certification, Veteran status, and other fields.
  • Peer supporters and peer specialists will be able to private message* each other about questions and/or to make personal connections for mentoring, support, or collaboration.
  • Peer supporters and peer specialists will have the opportunity to participate in discussion boards focused on best-practices for peer supporters.

This community will be a place where individuals can come together to share perspectives, resources, and ideas on how to strengthen the peer support community so that more individuals can share hope, and the mental health system can continue on its road to recovery.

*Note individuals will have the option when they are creating their profile to determine if they would like to be included in networking searches and if so, they will have additional options to limit the ways others can search for them.
