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.

Ohio’s peer Supporter training includes a 40 hour in-person integrated peer training, 16 hours of E-Based Academy Courses, and a test.  The integrated peer support curriculum was funded through a SAMHSA BRSS TACS grant in an effort to promote the widespread adoption of recovery-oriented supports, services, and systems for people in recovery from mental health and/or substance use disorders.
