Who We Are

All of the people involved with LBHS, from our Board of Directors to our Peer Mentors and Facilitators, are people who have been affected by both mental illness and minority status. Most of us started out at LBHS by attending a class or a support group. As part of our recovery, we engage in outreach, advocacy, mentorship, and education. Often, we become teachers, facilitators, presenters, mentors, therapists, or administrators who support LBHS and other social service agencies in the community. In this way, we build our own capacity and the capacity of the community that we are a part of to fulfill its own needs.
