Peer support staff are individuals in recovery from a mental illness or substance use disorder who have leveraged their lived experience to assist others in recovery. To help integrate these staff effectively into the behavioral health care workplace, Resources for Integrated Care has created two 2-page PDFs, Leveraging the Lived Experience of Peer Support Staff in Behavioral Health and Tips to Reduce Negative Attitudes Faced by Peer Support Staff, and a video, Eliminating Stigma Faced by Peer Support Staff.
