Do you have… the strength of a warrior, the courage of a fighter, the heart of a hero? We are looking for Veterans and family members who are willing to share their own experiences and offer support to others in a confidential, non-judgmental relationship.
Peer mentors provide:
Peer mentors do not act as counselors. They will receive training in recognizing symptoms of PTSD, as well as identifying and reviewing suicide risk. Peer mentors will be provided with post-meeting supervision to maintain a level of safety and comfort for both themselves and the person seeking support. If you have any questions about becoming a peer mentor, Contact Joel Abelove, Director of Veteran and Family Services or call 518.279.7861.
