Peer Partners supports people in the San Francisco Bay Area who live with mental health, substance use, and other challenges in pursuing recovery as they transition out of the hospital. For us, recovery means finding ways of living that work for you, based on your personal goals and needs. Peer coaches are here to partner with you in the recovery process as you find the resources, tools, and personal knowledge you need to work toward your goals and find your footing again. Peer coaches all live with their own mental health challenges and use their experience in recovery and specialized peer training to support you now.

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, and encouragement, and offer well wishes and caring words to the patients on the unit.
