Georgia Peer Support, Wellness, and Respite Centers

The Peer Support, Wellness, and Respite Centers (PSWRCs) of Georgia are projects of the Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network, funded through a contract with the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities. The PSWRCs are peer-run alternatives to traditional mental health services. Each of the five PSWRCs offer a 24/7 warmline, daily wellness activities, community resources, computers/wifi, and 3 respite rooms where a person can stay for up to 7 days instead of going into  psychiatric hospital. The PSWRCs are open from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm for house tours, activities, community outings, general resources, and computers.
