Mental Health Peer Provider (Full-Time; based in San Rafael, CA)

When you're experiencing a mental health crisis, the presence of someone who understands what you're going through can make all the difference. In partnership with Marin County's Behavioral Health & Recovery Services, MHASF aims to make that difference for Marin County residents. We place peer counselors with a mobile, multidisciplinary triage team to respond to crisis calls and help build a sense of trust, safety, and possibility for people at their most vulnerable.

Our Peer Providers help offer a wide array of supports to residents of Marin County during and after mental health crises, including emotional support, short-term housing linkages, transportation, public benefits enrollment, health system navigation, service referrals, advocacy, and much more. Most importantly, they use their own lived experience of crisis and recovery to develop authentic connections and belief in the reality of hope.

If you're seeking to put your lived experience to work helping others, have your own vehicle, and enjoy work that offers variety and challenge, we would love to hear from you!
