Incorporating Peers into Your Organization’s Workforce

Data indicates that when peer work is added to traditional services, outcomes are enhanced and services are more effective. Peer Workers offer unique skills and personal perspectives that engage service recipients and give staff and customers the opportunity to see peers successfully functioning in productive social roles
In order to capitalize on this opportunity, professional and paraprofessional staff may need support to transition to a peer-friendly workforce. MHAW’s Careers in Recovery staff can help build a culture of success for your organization as you incorporating a peer worker by addressing staff concerns and developing job descriptions.
