A message from The P.E.E.R. Center’s Executive Director Juliet Dorris-Williams

Peer Recovery Support is an integral component to promote recovery, wellness and resiliency for individuals with a lived experience with mental health challenges and substance use disorders.

Over the past few years, Ohio’s behavioral health services have been incorporating Peer Recovery Support into the workplace. OhioMHAS has partnered with The P.E.E.R. Center to support Ohio agencies with technical assistance by providing, “Implementation of Peer Supporters in the Work Place” trainings.
