Transforming mental health,
one community at a time
At Form Communities, we believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality mental health support, regardless of their background or circumstances. We’re committed to transforming the world of mental health support in Texas, and beyond, through our innovative programs and initiatives. Our programs are designed to empower individuals and communities, break down stigma, and promote mental wellness. We’re working tirelessly to create a future where peer support is widely accessible and recognized as an effective form of mental health treatment.
Community is the Cure
We believe that connecting with others connects you to yourself. In all of our work, evidence-based approaches to recovery reference one of two models: Peer Support and Social Practice. In concert, these approaches allow for communities to grow, heal, and support each other.
How We Do It
Peer Support is a widely recognized, evidence-based approach to the process of recovery. People with lived experience walk alongside someone in a journey of healing.
Social Practice is a specialized form of psycho-social therapy utilizing intentional community to support people in their journeys of mental health recovery.
San Antonio Clubhouse
A transformative member-driven community for people experiencing mental illness; based upon an international, proven model with identified standards for excellence.
The Connection Center
The largest trainer of Mental Health Peer Specialists in Texas. A vertically-integrated program that provides Peer Support, trains people to become Peers, and supports organizations looking to implement Peer services. This team is setting the bar for what Peer Support can be in Texas.
The highly successful Clubhouse in San Antonio became the driver for Texas-wide replication. We work with communities to provide technical assistance, financial support, social practice training, education, and policy advocacy.
Peer Academy is a training entity dedicated to providing comprehensive training and certification for Mental Health Peer Specialists (MHPS) in Texas. Our core and MHPS supplemental trainings are designed to equip individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge to provide effective peer support to those in need.
A joint project with the Centralized Training Infrastructure (CTI) at UT Health Science Center San Antonio, we provide support to the entire, evidence-based Peer ecosystem in the State of Texas, including the Peers themselves, the communities where they live, and the organizations that train and employ them.
Strong programs need strong data capabilities. Our Flourish team provides the data infrastructure needed for many small nonprofits: technical support, system customization, and data analysis. We focus on your systems so you can focus on your mission.
