Island Strong

Empowering peers for a brighter future. 

This website is dedicated to connecting the peers (people with lived experience of mental health issues, co-occurring disorders and/or addiction issues) from across the Pacific Jurisdictions (Guam, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, American Samoa, Federated States of Micronesia and Republic of the Marshall Islands). The intention is for all to share what they are doing in the development of peer support and peer involvement in the planning, delivery and evaluation of mental health, co-occurring and addiction services.

Check out the Island Updates tab to find out what is happening in each place, Upcoming Events for trainings, events, etc., and Peer Convergence for the next meeting of peers from across the Pacific Jurisdictions.
