Peer specialists are individuals with lived experience of mental health, substance use, trauma, legal involvement, and/or homelessness who are trained to help others engage in the recovery process. Peers have the unique experience of being a service recipient and provider within behavioral health and/or justice settings. Peers develop rapport with people seeking services and contribute invaluable insights to treatment teams based on their personal experience in navigating service systems.
