What is a Peer Support Specialist? A Certified Peer Specialist is a professional who utilizes their personal lived experience to provide support to others and demonstrate that recovery is possible. State of Wisconsin Certified Peer complete peer support training, examination, and continuing education requirements specific to both mental health and substance use-oriented lived experiences.. Peer Support Specialists draw on lived experience (meaning they’ve been through it themselves), they are not clinical.
Peer Support is peer centered and the peer is the expert in their life. It’s not my job to diagnose, prescribe, or even tell a person what to do. I believe my role is to support and walk alongside people as they decide the best course of action for themselves, rather than to lead them where I think they should go.
Each peer is different and so, each session will be unique, tailored to you, your needs, and the goals you want to achieve. Peer support specialists can work with you on a number of levels from understanding and improving your mental health to recovery and addiction to setting goals and working towards your dreams
