Portal Information

Description

The central idea guiding WGA is the notion that all individuals must experience some form of sustainable peer support if they are to truly live productive and well-adjusted lives. It is with this fundamental principle that we have established an enduring collaboration between the students of Wesleyan University and Gilead Community Services. By pairing Wesleyan students with individuals receiving Gilead services, we hope not only to provide the service of friendship to individuals recovering from mental illness, but also to benefit ourselves from our experiences with them. "Gilead Community Services' mission is to provide a broad range of high quality health care and recovery support services in the home and community to improve mental health, physical well being, independence, and community integration for the individuals we serve."
