Our Programs

Amistad is committed to peer support and recovery. We help in a variety of capacities, from emergency room assistance to peer-to-peer assistance groups.

Peer Support Specialist Program at Mercy Hospital

It is what you would expect to receive from a family member or friend if they were to accompany you to the emergency room for a medical emergency. We offer peer support to individuals who visit the emergency room for a psychiatric crisis – individuals who are often frightened, confused, and very often alone.

Peer Outreach Worker Program

This pilot program provides peer support and fosters alternative solutions for individuals who frequently use the psych emergency room to get their emotional needs met. Trained peers meet with people in a community setting to expand their options and help lessen their dependence on the emergency room.
