Welcome to Compeer of Lebanon County!
At Compeer, we realize how valuable friendship is to people who are in recovery from mental illness. To stay on the road to recovery, a person living with mental illness needs more than traditional therapy can offer. They need the support of a friend, they need a Compeer friend! The simple gift of friendship can restore joy and hope to a person who is often empty of both. Compeer of Lebanon recruits, screens, trains, and matches volunteers in one-to-one friendship relationships with adults who are receiving mental health treatment.
To enhance and support recovery, wellness, and a sense of belonging for our friends and neighbors living with mental illness.
-Friendships and supportive relationships as a key element for the recovery, support, and wellness of those we serve.
-The engagement and collaboration of our community through our network of partnerships, volunteers, supporters and mental health professionals.
