Job Info

The mission of the Peer-to-Peer Program is to provide a safe and supportive environment where clients can connect with others whose shared experiences help them work through various stages of crisis. Clients can join in peer-led activities, including guided meditation, arts and crafts, and "recovery is real" group discussions. If they prefer, they can simply relax, enjoy a cup of coffee, or watch television in a comfortable, home-like atmosphere surrounded by empathetic peers whose similar situations can be invaluable during recovery. Offering respect, understanding, and ongoing encouragement, our peers are a guiding force to renew hope and strengthen clients' determination to stay on track with their own journeys of recovery.

Aspire Health Alliance's peer support specialists are qualified by lived experience and trained through the Massachusetts Certified Peer Specialist Program. Each is dedicated to connecting with clients, urging open, honest dialogue-and showing by example that recovery is possible. Role models for the group, they also advocate for their peers, promote healing through relationship building, and provide guidance on other mental health resources if needed.

Located at 460 Quincy Avenue in Quincy, Peer-to-Peer is open Thursday and Friday from 5:00 pm until 11:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm, and on holidays between the hours of 10:00 am and 1:00 pm.
