Description of Service
Trail Guides is a mentoring program for young adults who experience mental health challenges. The program is recovery oriented and believes that community integration supports the recovery process. Understanding that young adults transitioning from adolescence often experience loneliness, isolation, stigmatization and boredom, Trail Guides counteracts these negative factors and supports people in finding meaning and purpose in life. The peer mentors create unique opportunities to explore vocational and educational interests. In addition, the program provides travel training for participants to learn how to navigate the community and its resources and encourage and assist participants in building a healthy support network.
