Mission

Our Mission: Our mission is to grow the peer support profession by promoting the inclusion of peer specialists throughout healthcare and other community systems worldwide.

Join us as we expand our grassroots movement in new and exciting ways. In demonstrating healthy relationships and friendships, the organization and all of those we influence along the way will become stronger. And we even have fun while working on projects together.

We learn together and grow in our ability to…..

  • Demonstrate compassion and hope
  • Understand
  • Expect more and encourage the next step
  • Increase acceptance of those with mental health, substance use, or trauma experiences in their communities of choice
  • Increase awareness of the benefits of hiring peer support providers

Vision

Our Vision:  Our vision is that peer support is a viable option for anyone who wants the mutuality of a compassionate peer support relationship.

As an organization with international connections, we advocate for the worldwide wisdom that peer support providers have gained from their own experiences to be an important component in health care and in system transformation.

We believe peer supporters are, in many locations, an untapped resource for the health care system and those who are being served. We also aim for better working conditions, compensation and the adoption of trauma-informed and recovery-oriented practices.
