Peer Support Services

Peer Support Services are available to individuals in recovery from mental illness or dual diagnosis of mental illness and substance use disorders. This is an individualized, recovery-focused service that allows individuals the opportunity to learn to manage their own recovery and advocacy process. Interventions of the Peer Support Specialist serve to enhance the development of natural supports, as well as coping and self-management skills. Peer support may include peer mentoring or coaching, resource connecting, facilitating and leading recovery, educational and support groups, advocating for the person/family served, and/or building community supports.
