Who are senior peer counselors?

Senior Peer Counselors have an interest in helping others work through age-related issues. They are Placer County residents who are 55 years old and better. They bring their life experience and have been screened and trained.

Once Senior Peer Counselors complete the initial training, they attend weekly group meetings supervised by the program coordinator.  Senior Peer Counselors will listen, support, and gently coach each client to reach his/her own solution.

Please note - Senior Peer Counselors are not licensed Mental Health Practitioners, but trained listeners with lived experience.
