The Peer-Run Warm Line, a non-emergency resource for anyone seeking support, serves our community 7 days-a-week. The Warm Line provides assistance via phone and web chat to people who need to reach out when having a hard time. We offer emotional support and information about mental health resources.


SOLVE (Sharing Our Lives, Voices, and Experiences) is a mental health stigma-elimination speakers bureau. SOLVE seeks to replace misconceptions and harmful beliefs about mental health challenges with our stories of recovery in free community presentations throughout the City and County of San Francisco.


PROPEL works to support, train and place individuals, both mental health consumers and family members, who are seeking to be employed or volunteer as peer personnel in the Public Mental Health System (PMHS). We also assist employers in the California PMHS in recruiting and retaining consumer and family member staff through workforce integration. 


Marin Peer Providers addresses and mitigates mental health crises through peer support and assistance in collaboration with other mental health and systems providers. We strive to give mental health consumers warm, strength-based, peer to peer timely and thorough support in order to reduce instances of involuntary hospitalization and promote recovery. 


We collect messages of hope on greeting cards. On the first Monday of every month SOLVE peer educators visit the San Francisco General Hospital psychiatric unit. We tell stories of our lives, our recovery, the stigma that we have experienced around mental health challenges, and how we are staying well today. We bring messages of hope, recovery, encouragement, and offer well wishes and caring words to the patients on the unit.
