Limits of Campfire

We think peer support can be a powerful force for good (which is why we are putting our lives into this!).  That said, Campfire is not meant to be a replacement for therapy or other mental healthcare provided by licensed professionals.

Campfire hosts are generally not licensed mental health professionals, but peers like you. If they happen to be licensed - they are not practising in that capacity while facilitating a Campfire group.

If you are at all in doubt of your needs, please seek out those services to be safe! You can always get peer support in addition.
