Peer Recovery WarmLine (PRW) )is a peer-run service providing ongoing telephone support to mental health consumers as they work towards their recovery. All calls are answered by peers who are trained, supportive people with lived experience with mental health disorder. PRW is live Monday through Friday, 8 am to 10 pm, Saturday and Sunday, 5 pm to 10 pm, and holidays, 3 pm to 10 pm. At the Peer Recovery WarmLine we try to get to know you as a person and how you view your world.

PRW uses the Intentional Peer Support model, which stresses mutual support of each other’s recovery and talking about your own “story” in a way that helps the recovery process for both you and the peer on the other end of the phone. If you need it, the PRW will also provide mental health-related information and referral. PRW has peers who are available to train individuals, groups, and agencies on how to use the concepts of WRAP and Intentional Peer Support in their daily lives in order to encourage recovery and the development and sustainment of supportive interpersonal relationships.
