Some More About Hey Peers:
Create a community of trusted and like-minded peers – those that share similar challenges and experiences, those that want support, and those that give support. Employers, nonprofits, health care organizations, payers, and individuals can set up an instant community and sponsor peer support for their employees, members or loved ones.
Connect with peers
Would you like to connect with peers or supporters between support group meetings? You can do this on Hey Peers. Individuals can quickly find others who they would like to connect with for mutual support. Connections are secure and confidential with an option to remain anonymous.
Hey Peers offers a premium option to journal and track moods, wellness, exercise, and other key components of mental and physical wellness. The easy recording of key indicators and important treatment information can help one see progress from support. No personal information is shared.
