NAMI Fox Valley’s Peer Run Respite
Opening Mid-March 2015!
NAMI Fox Valley is excited to announce a new program in our community – Peer Run Respite! Our agency was one of
three in the state to receive funding for this innovative approach to supporting individuals struggling with mental health
and/or substance abuse. Iris Place is completely staffed and run by individuals with lived experience who provide
24/7/365 recovery-oriented peer support. Establishing mutual connection and relationships creates a comfortable, nonjudgmental environment to offer hope and healing.
Get Involved!
