Peer Support Services at Capitol Hill in Nashville

Tennessee

Centerstone Peer Support Services staff and clients took part in Behavioral Health Day at Capitol Hill in Nashville on March 20 for a time of fun, fellowship, advocacy and education. Centerstone Peer Support Services provide a safe and supportive environment where individuals with mental illness or addiction gain confidence, build social skills, develop new friendships and engage in learning and leisure activities with peers.

During a program highlighting the Healing Arts Project, Inc. (HAPI), Tennessee Governor Bill Lee dropped by to see Peer Support Services in action. While there, he asked Rosie Morton, a peer coach with Centerstone’s PRAISE program, to describe one of her displayed artworks.

Eric Brito, a Centerstone peer educator, and Rosie were also asked to speak on one of the Day on the Hill panels about what art means to them.
