Compeer Lancaster is a program of Mental Health America of Lancaster County that matches adults in the community who are in recovery from mental illness with a volunteer friend. One-to-one matches spend about 4 hours together per month, engaging in activities such as going for a walk, getting a cup of coffee, or watching a sporting event. Compeer Calling volunteers check in with their friend by phone for about 15 minutes every week.
Compeer friends are not counselors, therapists, or social workers; they are simply friends who provide social support to their match. If you know how to be a friend, you know how to be a Compeer.
