Peer Support Services

Development of Peer Support Core Values, Mission Statement, and Vision Statement

The Peer Support Team serves a critical role in providing non-clinical direction to peers who want to achieve long-term success with mental health challenges. Oftentimes, many teams don't have shared values and a position statement or a position statement to show their why, how, and what. Developing these core values, a mission statement and vision statement aligns everyone with shared goals and direction. 

Peer Support Quarterly Meeting Assistance

It’s vital to have scheduled quarterly meetings that are lead with a influential message that not only brings insight and educational information, but also one that brings mindfulness and resiliency techniques for those serving on the team. Many of your Peer Support Team Members are rank in file personnel that experience trauma on a regular basis, and then experience the trauma that others face. Having an experienced Peer Support Team Leader work with your team can bring mutual benefits to both Peer Support Team members and Employer.
