PLAN Connections

Connections is the newest initiative to be offered by PLAN, a program of Jewish Family Service of Greater Dallas that is dedicated to providing comprehensive support toward a meaningful life in community for individuals with mental health challenges and their families. PLAN Connections will provide a combination of Case Management and Peer Support for free to those who can benefit from the services, regardless of PLAN membership status. This program is funded through a grant awarded by North Texas Behavioral Health Authority. 

Peer Support

A Mental Health Peer Support Specialist (MHPS) is a person who has walked the path of recovery from mental illness and is employed to assist others in their journies of recovery. Peers promote hope through positive self-disclosure, demonstrating that recovery is possible. Peer Support Specialists work in conjunction with trained professionals. They work with peers in crafting treatment strategies, such as wellness recovery action plans. They fill a gap by providing support from the perspective of someone who has first-hand experience, something that professionals cannot learn from training or education.
