The article on Peer Support available through the above link, appeared in the Warren Times Observer on June 12, 2015. The article talks about a variety of Peer programs found at Beacon Light Behavioral Health in Warren, PA. I felt the article gave a really good representation of some of the changes being seen in Warren County with regards to mental health treatment.
