What is Peer Support?

Having a peer supporter on your team is like having a partner in recovery who is there to validate your experience and walk with you through the dross of institutionalized oppression and misconception. The main thing that sets peer workers apart from the medical treatment team is that peer workers uphold the basic understanding that each person is the expert in their own lives and should thus be in charge of their own recovery.

Go Back to Your Slumber 2020 (Poem)

He’s different
He’s special
He’s one of a kind
