Molly Griggs, PSS, CRM
Peer Support Specialist for Washington County CHOICE Model Team
Molly comes to MHAO with a passionate belief in an individual’s ability to recover from almost anything. Molly’s own life experiences have made her particularly familiar with and sympathetic to the barriers faced by those with challenges such as mental health, addiction, and criminal involvement. Molly identifies as in recovery in a variety of areas including eating disorders, alcoholism/addiction, and gambling. Molly also has lived experience with domestic violence, DHS and criminal courts, and parole and probation involvement.
Between 2003 and 2005 Molly experienced a “perfect storm” of traumatic events that lead to hospitalization, incarceration and subsequent involvement in the criminal justice system. Since 2006 Molly has been on the path of holistic recovery, she is excited to be of service to peers through MHAO. Molly lives in Washington county with her 80 year old mother, her sons (age 23 and 12), 1 bird, 3 dogs, 3 cats, 12 chickens, and 1 rooster.
