Peerlink National Technical Assistance Center is a project of Mental Health Association of Oregon, a 501(c) (3) organization and is a federally funded national consumer/survivor technical assistance center through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

 

Peerlink works to strengthen the capacity and infrastructure of peer-run programs and traditional mental health organizations.  We also work with generic community agencies to increase their capacity to provide services to people diagnosed with mental illness that facilitate and promote social inclusion.

 

We offer training in organizational development, employment, financial self-sufficiency and wellness services to people who use/have used mental health services and generic community agencies. Peerlink facilitates peer-run programs to move beyond focusing on general support and advocacy to promoting social inclusion strategies.

 

We believe that people diagnosed with mental illness are empowered by working, having financial resources, and participating in their communities as informed and healthy citizens.
