At Stepping Stone and Next Step we believe that Peer Support is a bridge between life with mental illness and life with community. We know that peer support is effective. People can and do recover from mental illness. Our organization takes great pride in what we do.

Through education, personal discovery, and the development of healthful skills, people change the way they think about themselves and their relationships. Members learn to think critically; respond rather than react; behave in relationships in a new, more healthful way; feel valued; become empowered; and move toward wellness.
