Compeer is a national mentoring program hosted by MHA that serves the needs of those dealing with mental health issues (or who have a guardian dealing with Mental health issues). Currently we are recruiting for mentors for our Compeer Lunch Buddy program.

Once matched they spend at least one hour a week at the students school during lunch/recess. Provide a child with a positive role model, mentor, and caring friend; be a Lunch Buddy and make a difference for you and them. *capes are optional.
