At Reintegration Support Network (RSN), our motto is “Stay Becoming”. This represents our shared commitment to aiding youth and emerging adults, 13-24yo in fostering their own wellbeing.
RSN facilitates Life Skills peer support groups within schools and other youth-serving organizations. The Life Skills curriculum is designed to uphold the SAMHSA Core Competencies of Peer Support: recovery oriented, person-centered, voluntary, relationship-focused, and trauma informed. The 8 week group focuses on supporting youth in developing healthy relationships, positive coping strategies, positive identity, and positive engagement in the community. Each group is co-facilitated by our North Carolina Certified Peer Support Specialist and/or Recovery Coach Academy trained mentors and supervised by our trained staff. Group Facilitators check in with each participant on a weekly basis and, following the group, participants are given the opportunity to engage with an RSN mentor for more focused one-to-one support.
RSN believes that growth is an ongoing process that consists of successes as well as setbacks. We are here to nurture resilience and help youth Stay Becoming.
