Individualized peer-to-peer support is one of our most important services at Verve Behavioral Health. Peer specialists are certified and trained individuals who have a shared experience struggling with a mental health issue.
Unlike a therapist, a peer-to-peer specialist helps others based on a combination of both their mental health training and, chiefly, their firsthand experience with similar circumstances. A peer specialist’s services do not replace those of a therapist but can be a powerful source of support during difficult times. We help clients match up with peer specialists who are best able to provide advice and solace in times of frustration, confusion, and grief.
Here at Verve Behavioral Health, our individualized peer-to-peer support program is based on existing training and certifications. Peer specialists are not clinicians but are certified in peer-to-peer support.
