Peer Support

Peer Support is a program that partners certified Peer Specialists with individuals receiving mental health services or co-occurring mental health services and substance abuse treatment.

Peer Specialists are unique in that they draw upon and share their own personal experiences to assist you in your recovery. They model recovery and will assist you in creating your own personal recovery plan.

Peer Specialists can provide support in finding a job, addressing housing issues, becoming involved in the community, self-advocacy, personal empowerment, and opportunities for socialization.

Support is completely participant-driven and can include:

  • Addressing housing issues
