The Peer Mental Wellness Mission
Our mission is to help those suffering from mental health disorders reconnect with who they are. Through holistic therapies that emphasize the creative process and cutting-edge, evidence-based approaches, we give our participants the tools and resources they need. Each client has a story and by attending to their emotional, mental, and spiritual growth, we show them the means to tell it.
We believe that everyone who walks through our doors is a peer. While we may have our individual stories, we all stand on the same ground as equals.
What Sets Peer Mental Wellness Apart
What makes us unique is in our name—we’re a community made up of people helping people. The multidisciplinary team at Peer Mental Wellness specializes in a range of mental health disorders, from depression and anxiety to bipolar and post-traumatic stress disorders. Through techniques such as cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy, EMDR, and Jungian therapy, our participants reach the underlying causes of what they’re facing. And as one of the only primary mental health treatment centers in California, we’re able to serve those who don’t need residential treatment but who would benefit from more consistent, supportive care than meeting with a therapist one-on-one.
Peer Mental Wellness is also a certified TRICARE provider. We offer specialized treatment programs for military service members and first responders. Serving this important community is one of the ways that we honor our commitment to individuals and families in Santa Ana and beyond.
What we offer our participants doesn’t start and end with therapy and counseling. Instead, we connect our clients with community resources, supportive housing, and other services as needed.
Our Programs and Services
Our outpatient programs include:
At Peer Mental Wellness, we understand that no two participants are the same. Instead of trying to fit those we support into predetermined boxes, we work closely with every member of our community to build out a unique treatment plan. Maybe you or your loved one respond more positively to EMDR than to art therapy, or vice versa. By finding the methods and approaches that work best for you, we’ll help you reach your goals.
Through creative process groups like art, music, or dance therapy, we help our participants find the most suitable medium with which to express themselves. Where others see problems, we see solutions. We see an opportunity to reconnect each participant with the artist inside.
In addition to these experiential therapies, we offer:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Trauma work
- Case management
- Dialectical behavior therapy
- Group counseling sessions
