Peer Support and Recovery Coaching

What is Peer Support?

Peer Support is a service provided by a person who has lived experience with mental illness or addiction and is committed to Recovery. Peers have a unique ability to gain the trust and respect of other consumers of care. Peer Support is a growing movement within community health.  It is an evidence-based practice model shown to help increase life skills and gain confidence.
