Certified Peer Support Specialists use their own life experience to guide those experienceing similar illnesses and trials. Our specialists are here to listen, help set goals, and talk through any problems that may be going on in your life.
Being a Peer Support Specialist, for me, means I get to help save a life like mine has been saved. I've been in recovery for 2 years. My addiction to alcohol, drugs, manipulation of people, places, and things for the past 20 years started from trauma.
I made the decision to get well. My life has changed drastically and each day is a reward. Now I want to share my experience, listen, and be there for others who want to fight this battle. Let's Get To It!

The founder of this non-profit suffers from anxiety and depression, and is married to someone with severe OCD. After years of dealing with the financial strain that therapy can cause for a family with mental illness, she set out to find an affordable solution. Support groups are low-cost, but don't always offer everything you need to improve your mental health. There are very few options in between for those with lower income. She decided to do something about it, and so Insane Ability was born.
