What is Peer Support and Why is it Important?

Peer support is the process of giving and receiving encouragement and assistance to help others achieve long-term recovery. Peer Support professionals offer emotional support, share knowledge, teach skills, provide practical assistance, and connect people with resources and opportunities. This is an integral and invaluable facet in the recovery journey. Navigating the mental health system, advocating for your needs and finding the best resources can be a difficult process, but a peer support specialist uses their knowledge and experience to help those in recovery with their needs.
