Mutual Support: We do it Together


We hear about systems of mutual support; where peers coping with similar struggles like HIV, mental health issues and surviving prison step into the roles typically filled by licensed specialists.

Mutual support can be controversial, especially when it tries to replace professional help. But it can also be immensely rewarding for all parties involved, and can save a ton of money.

This show features a special segment by Making Contact Storytelling Fellow Al Sasser. Find out more about the fellowship here.
