Peer Support: Let’s text or talk

“I feel so much better now that I could talk to someone.”

– Anonymous


More often than not life is demanding and can feel far from perfect. Challenges can appear when you least expect them, or so regular that it becomes the routine. Regardless of what issues you may be facing, here at Building Hope our Peer Support Volunteers are available and ready to help. This free and confidential program is available for all topics faced by community members including isolation, stress from work, family or friends, and mental health struggles like depression and anxiety.  

Peer Support Volunteers are available via call or text to provide resources and referrals and listen openly to your struggles. Our peer support program is not a replacement for talk therapy or mental healthcare, but may be the first step in healing or assisting in a person’s mental health journey.

There is a stigma around opening up and talking through our obstacles. We want you to know we can relate, and we are here for YOU. Our trained volunteers have lived experiences, and by normalizing these conversations, we hope to provide comfort for members of the community when it is needed. 

Peer Support Volunteers complete an extensive training regimen designed by the Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Depression Center at Colorado University’s Anschutz Medical Campus. We are always looking for volunteers; if this sounds like you, please fill out our Volunteer Inquiry Form. 

“My experience talking with a peer was beyond my expectations. She was so kind, patient, thorough, understanding, and empathetic. ”
