Peer Support Agencies
The Peer Support Agencies (PSAs) are located throughout New Hampshire. They are private not-for-profit agencies that have contracted with the NH Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Behavioral Health (BBH). Peer support agencies provide services to people with mental illness who are 18 years of age or older and self-identify as a recipient, former recipient, or as at significant risk of becoming a recipient of publicly funded mental health services.

Peer support services are provided by and for people with a mental illness and are designed to assist people with their recovery. Peer support consists of supportive interactions based on shared experience among people and are intended to assist people to understand their potential to achieve their personal goals. Interactions are based on trust, respect, and mutual support. Peer support agencies accomplish this by providing choice, using non-medical approaches to help, sharing decision making, encouraging informed decision making about all aspects of people's lives, challenging perceived self-limitations, etc.

Services include, but are not limited to: face-to-face and telephone peer support; outreach; monthly educational events; activities that promote self-advocacy; wellness training; after hours warm line; crisis respite (24 hours, short-term, non-medical crisis program).

All peer support agency locations are accessible by wheelchair except where noted.
