Organization description: 

Established in 1986, Friends & Advocates Peel is a Community Based, Adult, Mental Health, Social Rehabilitation Organization.

Friends & Advocates Peel provides a variety of support services to those who have experienced and are recovering from, mental/emotional distress, which has led to social isolation, so that they can gain confidence and maintain themselves as active participants, in their own community, as they themselves would define it.

In the Central West LHIN, Friends & Advocates Peel was appointed to establish a Consumer/Survivor Network (CSN). Funding for the CSN was flowed through F&A Peel to establish the network, and since that time, meetings have been held in 5 communities in the L.H.I.N., and a database of mental health or concurrent disorders consumers/survivors has been created. From each geographic area, representatives have been elected to meet, interact, and to put forth recommendations to the L.H.I.N. board concerning their local needs.
