A valuable collaboration for Certified Peer Specialists (CPS),
those considering getting CPS certified,
and for Treatment Team Members

Peer support encompasses a range of activities and interactions between people who share similar experiences of being diagnosed with mental health conditions, substance use disorders, or both.

This mutuality between a peer support specialist and person in/or seeking recovery promotes connection and inspires HOPE.

Peer support offers a level of acceptance, understanding, and validation not found in other professional relationships. 

By peers sharing their own lived experience and practical guidance, peer support specialists help individuals they work with develop their own personal goals, create strategies for self-empowerment, and assist and encourage them to take concrete steps towards building fulfilling, self-determined lives.

There are many studies that validate the effectiveness of peer support. Research has proven that peer support helps improve individual recovery outcomes.

Now more than ever, there is a great emphasis on recovery from mental illness and substance use disorders.

Our goal is to help create a statewide network of certified peers where their unique skills are utilized, and their lived experience valued.

The Summit Goal

It will bring peers together from across the state to network, collaborate, and learn with each other and from each other.

Align

It will provide opportunities for peers to be educated on best practices and practical tools that support long term recovery.

Mobilize

It will help peers develop a voice, so they feel confident advocating for the highest quality care for their clients.
