This is your Pleo Team. The people who will be there alongside you through your journey, and behind the scenes championing better mental health care for our kids and families.
Our Family Peer Supporters bring the wisdom and experience of supporting their own child, youth, or young adult with mental health or addiction challenges. They also complete extensive ongoing training – on the mental health system, diagnoses, promising and best practices, and specialized skills such as ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training), Motivational Interviewing, Collaborative Problem Solving, and SMART Recovery. And they’re locals – they live where you live, in the communities we currently serve, because the experience is different in each community, and we need our services to reflect that.

Thank you thank you … you were a guardian angel today. I was a bit distressed and you really did help; best phone call I ever decided to make, especially when I have no one. Again I can’t thank you enough .
