Janet Snyder interviews Jennifer Zeitler, the Coordinator of Adult Services for Compeer and Daniel Lukasik, a Board member and founder of lawyerswithdepression.com. They discuss why friendships are so important to both mental and physical wellness as well as their veteran volunteer program.
Founded in 1985 Compeer's mission is to use the power of volunteer-friends and mentors to improve the lives of children, adults, and older adults for good mental health. Through one-to-one therapeutic relationships volunteers offer friendship and support for several hours a month for one year. Compeer provides this service across the life span with specialty programs including veterans-to-veterans.
