Mental Health Services Act (MHSA)


Peer-to-Peer Support Services

Peer support is an integral element of a recovery-oriented behavioral health system; and provision of behavioral health support by persons who have had experience with these issues innately brings empathy and empowerment that can inspire recovery in others.  MHSA funding for Peer-to-Peer Support Services gives peer providers, who have significantly recovered from their illnesses, the opportunity to assist others by teaching how to build the skills necessary that lead to meaningful lives.
