Peer Support Facilitator

GreenTree peer support facilitators are responsible for helping foster a supportive community environment where participants can feel safe and find encouragement and empowerment in their healing journeys. 
This is accomplished by leading group activities and discussions as well as talking one-on-one with our peers and sometimes by just hanging out and socializing.

We need volunteers who have experience coping with and overcoming emotional health challenges. GreenTree is striving to become truly trauma-informed and trauma-sensitive and to offer a person-centered alternative to usual mental health service providers. We are not professionals providing services, but a community of equals seeking to help each other find healing, growth, and empowerment and encouraging self-determination, autonomy, and personal responsibility. 

A willingness to share one's own struggles and victories is critical, as is working as a team with other facilitators, asking for help when needed, and using good self-care practices to maintain personal wellness. Open communication is necessary to keep expectations clear all around and volunteers are encouraged to commit only as much as they are able. Faciitators are accountable for informing co-workers as soon as possible when circumstances arise limiting their availability.
