What is Peer Support?
Peer Support Services are an important part of the recovery journey. In these programs, people who have made major progress in their own recovery from mental illness and/or addiction, receive formal training so they can help others in their recovery journeys. They are called Certified Peer Support Specialists.
Our Peer Support Specialists encourage and support others like them who are on the path to recovery. Since they have lived experience with recovery, they have a unique and honest point of view. They offer practical support, show what recovery can look like, and teach skills to help people who are experiencing mental health challenges to lead meaningful lives in the community.
