What Is Peer Support?
Peer Support Services provides a helping relationship between a person receiving behavioral health services and a Certified Peer Specialist. Peers are able to use personal experiences from their own recoveries to relate to participants with empathy, compassion, and insight. As a peer, they are able to role-model recovery and teach resilience.
Individuals must have a mental health diagnosis and be 18 years or older. Services are available under Optum and Blue Cross-True Blue.
