GRMHA’s Peer Support Program is a community-based service for individuals with a serious mental health or co-occurring (mental health & substance use disorder) lived experience.
Peer support services are an important component in recovery-oriented systems of care. Because Certified Peer Specialists (CPS) self-identify as individuals in recovery they are able to offer insight into the recovery process and can provide a unique perspective to those with similar experiences. The role of the CPS reflects a collaborative and strength-based approach. Services provided by the CPS are a critical component of the continuum of care services that will substantially improve an individual’s ability to sustain recovery and wellness.
Eligibility to participate in peer support services requires a recommendation from a practitioner of the healing arts (i.e. – physician, physician’s assistant, certified registered nurse practitioner, licensed clinical social worker, licensed marriage and family therapist, licensed professional counselor or psychologist) and participating insurance. Below are the forms that need to be completed and submitted.
