Mental Health Peer Connection is part of the Western New York Independent Living family of agencies. When you meet with a MHPC peer, you are meeting with someone just like you. All of the people who work with us have a diagnosis as well and talk to you as an equal.
Talking with someone who has been there is incredibly powerful and lets you know that if they can do it, so can you. We have been in institutions, in prison, and on benefits. We know exactly what you are going through because we have gone through it ourselves. We know how to stay out of the institutions, get off benefits, and advocate with our providers. We will help you make choices for yourself on how you want to manage your situation. We can also help you with day-to-day issues such as transportation, personal finance, and job skills.
MHPC exists to empower people with mental illness to take charge of their life and overcome the stigma and obstacles society places in our way. Contact us today.
