Our [i]nspired Peer Program aims to support teens and young adults navigating daily pressures, substance use disorder, and mental health challenges. The peer mentoring program creates peer-to-peer engagement with the goal of providing drug and nicotine prevention resources, inspire confidence, create resilience, and improve overall safety and well-being. Peer Support is based on mutual respect and strategic self-disclosure to increase hope, self-advocacy skills, and relationship building. Our Certified Peer Support Specialists and mental health coaches share their experiences to build connections with youth. The program fosters leadership skills and provides parent coaching and support.

The [i]nspired Peer Program utilizes app-based technology that allows our peer support staff to have safe, confidential, and constant access to a member’s updates on daily challenges and wins. The platform assists in goal setting and completion, recognizing mood and behavior changes, as well as offering virtual support and communication from our Certified Peer Support team. Your teen has the support they need literally at their fingertips!


After an initial evaluation, each member will be paired with a trained and Certified Peer Support Specialist. Together they will focus on current challenges, life skills, and communication. Peers will foster relationships built on trust without judgment. They will instill confidence, educate, and be an ally. The 90-day program is tailored to each member’s needs and includes virtual and in-person meetings. Members will be introduced to the community at [i]nspired Campus by NMK and provided access to resources, such as mental health coaches, workshops, and support groups.
