Recovery from mental health issues is possible. It happens every day at Project ABLE.

Through one-on-one Peer Support and wellness classes, people’s lives change. Individuals at Project ABLE receive support that embraces human dignity, celebrates personal empowerment, and promotes recovery.

“I now see hope in my future.”


Peer Support Specialist Training

Project ABLE was the first peer-led organization in the State of Oregon to receive accreditation from the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) in 2010. Since this time, Project ABLE has trained thousands of peers from all over Oregon to become certified Peer Support Specialists (PSS).

Vocational Rehabilitation

In partnership with Oregon’s Vocational Rehabilitation Office, Project ABLE offers the full range of peer support programs to individuals seeking to re-enter the workforce. This program is available to Vocational Rehabilitation clients who are also consumers of mental health services.

Activity groups

A wide variety of person-centered options are available through Project ABLE, including peer-to-peer support, group activities, workshops, and classes. Click on our Calendar of Events for more information.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

To make sure everyone stays current on their certification(s), the State of Oregon requires annual continuing educational training. We offer a variety of course that meet these requirements on campus, on-line and in some cases we\’ll bring the class to you.

Apoyo Entre Compañeros en Español

El camino de recuperación es tan única como las millones de personas que empiezan este viaje en un momento dado. Proyecto ABLE promueve la recuperación enfocando en las fortalezas de cada individuo y apoyandolos en su propio proceso de cambio, como eyos lo definen.

Veteran Services

Peer Support is when an individual provides support to another who shares similar life experiences. When working with veterans this is important because only those who\’ve taken the Oath of Enlistment understand military related trauma are considered peers and know what it\’s like to sign that blank check, made payable to “The United States of America.”

Project ABLE survives through generous grants and donations.
