What is a a peer support line?

A peer support line (sometimes referred to as a ‘warmline’) is a phone line that you can call during a designated set of days and hours to:

  • Get support
  • Ask about resources
  • Connect with another person who can relate or has ‘been there’
  • Just talk

 

As opposed to a crisis line that is answered by a clinician and focuses on whether or not you may qualify for hospitalization or respite, a peer support line is answered by a trained peer worker who has their own lived experience (with a psychiatric diagnosis, trauma, extreme or altered states, etc.) and who is there to talk and offer support.
