Peer support is emotional and practical support between two people who share a common experience, such as a mental health challenge or illness. A Peer Specialist has lived through that similar experience, and is trained to support others.
With direction and guidance, a Peer Specialist advocates for, educates and assists adult clients in regaining control over their own recovery process as well as supports families of children & adolescents in navigating mental health and social systems.
