Peers Assisting in Community Engagement

PACE Peer Support Services, provided by peers, are structured and scheduled for activities for adults age 18 and older with a diagnosis of Mental Health and Substance Use disorders. This is an individualized, recovery-focuses service that allows individuals the opportunity to learn to manage their own recovery and advocacy process. Interventions by Peer Support staff serve to enhance the development of natural supports, as well as coping and self-management skills; and may also provide supportive services to assist an individual in community re-entry following hospitalization.

Specific interventions include: self-help, system advocacy, individual advocacy, pre-crisis and post-crisis support, housing, education / employment, meals and social activities.
