About this training: Peer Services are a process of giving and receiving support and education from individuals with shared life experiences.  Peer Services are provided by individuals in recovery from mental illness and/or addiction who use their lived experience as a tool to assist others by sharing their personal journeys and knowledge.  Individuals engaged in peer services play a vital role in laying the foundation for sustained recovery.  They encourage, inspire and empower others to set recovery goals and achieve them.
