Mental Health Mentors

Compeer programs match friendly, sociable volunteers with local adults who are in sustained recovery for mental health. The volunteer and their match typically take walks, grab a bite to eat, watch a movie, attend an art exhibit, visit the library, go shopping, or catch a sporting event together. Those who cannot meet in person can chat on the phone or by video chat. Volunteers provide an extra level of positive friendship, support, and social interaction to help their Compeer friends—and the volunteers themselves—feel more fulfilled and engaged. Volunteers receive comprehensive training before spending at least four hours per month and one year in duration with their Compeer friends. This gift of friendship helps build a bond of belonging and enhanced wellness. Givers gain! Note: Volunteers based in Rockland County are preferred.
