The power of a testimony!! Peer Support services allow participants to connect with a peer who has similar lived experience. This may include substance abuse history, mental health history, traumatic brain injury, veterans’ experience, and the list goes on. Peer support specialists provide mentorship, advocacy and additional recovery support by providing inspiration, hope, guidance, and support to individuals with a condition who wish to make a desired social or personal change. Peers function as a role model of competency in recovery and ongoing coping skills.
