Mission and Vision
The mission and vision of the Pennsylvania Peer Support Coalition were established by its Board of Directors to give our organization a sense of purpose and direction. Over the years they have served as a guide and provided focus to those charged with running the organization.
The Pennsylvania Peer Support Coalition supports the people and organizations doing the work of peer support by facilitating networking opportunities and education on recovery. We ensure that people who provide peer support have a voice in the development of relevant statewide policies. We serve as a central source for information on peer support in Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania Peer Support Coalition is committed to transforming the mental health system statewide by promoting, supporting and advocating for peer support in Pennsylvania. We envision a day when various forms of peer support will be available and accessible to all people with mental health and co-occurring* needs on their recovery journey.
*A person with a co-occurring disorder is someone who has both a mental illness diagnosis and a substance abuse diagnosis.
