Peer support services are provided for all peers (clients) coming in for therapy or psychiatric services to help with their road to recovery. The peer support specialists’ main objective is to use their shared lived experience to help the peer better understand why therapy and/or medications are so important to their recovery, but not the only piece to the puzzle. Peer support also involves teaching that there is more to recovery than therapy and medication. The peer support specialist is certified in Whole Health & Resiliency, Emotional CPR, and Mental First Aid.
