People USA provides people living with mental health or addiction issues with the highest quality, effective peer services and behavioral health care.
We are a peer-run nonprofit organization. This means our agency is 100% made up of people with their own lived experience with mental health or addiction issues, trauma, crisis, recovery, and moving forward towards wellness. In other words, there is a mutuality between us and the people we serve.
Our mission is to educate, support, and empower people and communities to understand, manage, and overcome mental health, addiction, and social determinant of health challenges.
People USA (est. 1990 as PEOPLe Inc.) has grown from a grassroots peer advocacy and support organization to become one of the most recognized and respected behavioral health organizations in the United States.
We have spread our unique models and best practices across the United States and internationally.
