PSS (Peer Support Specialist) Program

A peer support specialist works as a team member to address feelings of stigma, social isolation, personal loss and other mental health barriers by modeling wellness and demonstrating personal responsibility, self-advocacy and hopefulness throughout the recovery journey.

By sharing perspectives of their lived mental health experiences, a peer support specialist builds a relationship and focuses on the strengths and potential of each person along the path of recovery.

PSS services can be provided wherever life happens—in the home, in the community or at our office. Services are a Medicaid billable. Our PSS team members are State Certified Peer Specialists.
