Who We Are
On Our Own’s mission is to provide free peer support, self-help, education, guidance, and referral services for adults who acknowledge that they are experiencing significant problems in their lives due to mental health and substance use challenges. The goal at On Our Own is not to “fix” anyone. We have thirty years of experience helping people who struggle with mental health challenges and addiction, and have been in similar places ourselves. But we do not believe that anyone is wise enough to dictate the course of anyone else’s recovery. Our goal, rather, is to empower people to understand where they are, where they have been, and to chart their own way forward.
