INTERNATIONAL PEER CRISIS LINE & PEER MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATES (PMHAs)
Our core idea is simple: people who have lived experience with mental illness can offer a specific, unique, culturally and socially relevant, and accessible type of mental health care-- known as peer support.
community education & speaking
A major goal for Project LETS is to democratize medical knowledge. We love sharing history, information, resources, and ideas; and have a wide variety of offerings for our community.
All workshops and speaking engagements are offered on a sliding-scale basis. No one will be turned away for lack of funds, and we will work together with your community to decide on a budget that works for everyone.
HIGH SCHOOL & college chapters
Project LETS Chapters are a network of students on college and university campuses that exist to embody the mission, vision, and goals of Project LETS. Through: organized meetings; activities, discussions, panels and workshops led by students with lived experience; advocacy efforts and political change; and peer counseling programs - each chapter serves as a voice of resistance, hope, and support for students and their surrounding communities.
LETS PROVIDER COLLECTIVE (LPC)
The LPC brings together culturally and socially responsive mental health providers to develop a community-based crisis response network that functions as an alternative to calling 911.
