Corey Jones

Certified Peer Supporter

Accepting New Connections

Hello! I struggled for a long time with many mental health challenges, but now I am doing well. I would like to support peers on their own journeys towards mental wellness, whatever that looks like for you all!

Willing to help others find local resources

About Corey Jones


I am a certified peer specialist in Atlanta, GA and I love what I do! I am knowledgeable about support groups of all kinds and can support you on learning more about them-on heypeers, I co-facilitate two Wake-Up Narcolepsy groups. I am queer, neurodivergent, love DBT, creating art, writing, my animals, and nerdy stuff. I have my own business, Hope Is Real LLC, and I am the author of two books: Hope Is Real: I Have A Purpose and Hope Is Real: Radical Recovery Prayers. @Brighthopeart on Instagram.

My Recovery Story

Learning skills, like those in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, gratitude, medication, art, and peer support all help me live the life I desire. I am manifesting my best life!

My Motivation To Help

The last time I was hospitalized in a mental hospital, I was supported more by my peers than by the staff. Now, I want to give that support back to other peers.
