What are Peer Support Specialists?
They are consumers who are in recovery who are hired to provide services to adults with MH/SA disabilities who are eligible for enhanced services.
What do Peer Support Specialists do?
They provide services which are individualized and recovery-focused and assist consumers with learning to manage their own recovery and how to self-advocate. These are accomplished by emphasizing personal safety, self worth, confidence, connection to the community, boundary setting, planning, personal fulfillment, development of social supports, the helper principle and effective communication skills.
