Since 2001, PEERS has been funded by Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services through the Mental Health Service Act (Prop 63) budget, and other grant opportunities, to offer programs that are designed and implemented by people who have lived experience with attempted suicide, hearing voices and special messages, using tools for wellness, and other mental health wisdom.

Our work focuses on building tools to assist in the pursuit of overall wellness, the idea that each and every person — regardless of what they've been through — can recognize the value they hold.
