Some community members may need support but are not necessarily in need of therapy or psychiatric assistance in the formal sense. Peer Support Specialists understand this and work to support anyone needing someone to listen or who understands how behavioral health, medical, and social services work in the community. Sometimes, people need assistance navigating the systems or want to explore options they may not be aware of. Anyone wishing for Peer Support can ask. Peer Support Specialists work in all behavioral health system programs. Community members can walk into a Peer Support & Resource Center or access the TakemyHand Live Peer Chat to start a conversation. Peer Support Specialists are the evidence that recovery is possible. They can share their unique insights with anyone needing support. They share their lived experiences of walking through mental health or substance challenges; they understand what works for them and how another person may benefit from the support of a mentor. Peer Support comes from the person who will encourage others by saying, “If I can do it, I believe that you can, too.”
