"The Mission of The Alternative Life Center" is to provide a sanctuary where people 18 years old and older learn to create a personal vision leading to their own recovery. This journey toward recovery occurs in a compassionate atmosphere through education, peer support, sharing of common experiences and utilizing individual as well as community resources".

A Welcome From The Director:

On behalf of the members and Board of Directors of The Alternative Life Center, I would like to welcome you to our web page.

Our centers are places where people with mental health issues can come and work through these issues together with staff or another peer. This is done in a non-judgmental atmosphere. We are non-professional. The Alternative Life Center consists of four Peer Support Centers: Conway Peer Support Center, Littleton Peer Support Center, Serenity Steps in Berlin, The Haven in Colebrook, Wolfeboro Outreach and a Warmline Program coming out of Conway, New Hampshire. Each of our centers has groups and workshops to aid our members as they move forward in their recovery.

I invite you to come and visit any of our sites in the state. Please wander through our web site and you will discover what kinds of activities that we offer at our centers.


peer support

How Peer Support is different from traditional mental health centers.

Mental Health Peer Support has been active in the state of New Hampshire for more than fifteen years. We are non-professional. All of our staff have been through some mental health crisis and can identify directly with our membership. This means that members and staff can relate to each other on a common ground. Members relate to other members. A bond is made.

What do we wish to achieve with this site?

We wish to show the public that there is another way to approach mental health without using labels (bi-polar, psychotic, etc. ) We give our members the tools that they need so that they can take care of themselves. We don't want to know what your "diagnosis" is. We want to know who you are as a person.
