Peer Support Specialist
Do you or someone you know have personal, lived experience with mental health or substance use issues with a strong recovery story? Then Peer Support Specialist may be a perfect position! Peer Supporters use their past experience and successful recovery to be a beacon of hope to others on their recovery journey. Having been in similar situations, they understand and can relate to some of the emotions, barriers, and struggles that participants may be facing.
They can provide resources, assist with goal planning, teach coping skills and provide support and encouragement along the way! Peers are certified at the state level. In order to become certified, applicants must successfully complete a 40 hour interactive in-person or virtual training. We offer these trainings!
