PeerFest is an educational and celebratory event for Texans who have faced mental health challenges and are on a journey to recovery.

Modeled, in part, after the National Alternatives Conference, PeerFest was created with the vision of a place where people with lived mental health experience are empowered to improve their well-being. An event by and for consumers (people with lived mental health experience), the event provides an opportunity to learn about well-being tools, explore taboo or inaccessible topics, and connect with peers. 

The inaugural PeerFest took place in Corpus Christi, Texas in 2016. It will occur again in the spring of 2020. More information about the upcoming event will be posted to this website and shared in Hogg News as it becomes available.

PeerFest is funded by the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health, and is coordinated in partnership with Via Hope.
