The Principle of Peership

Our Story

A Gap in the Forest established the principle of Peership to capture the essence of the services we provide. We define Peership as a relationship between two or more people who, through lived experience, glean strength in shared challenges, and hope from each other's personal journeys.

We reinforce the importance of personal connection and finding community among like-minded individuals. Collaborating on creative projects and telling our individual and collective stories builds purpose and continues the important dialogue concerning mental health.

Conceptualized during the pandemic of 2020, AGITF was inspired by both the passion and unique experience of Insight Enrichment Group's team of peer mentors, and the inspiring talents of the clients they work with.
