Employment as a peer support specialist can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. Having the opportunity to use your own personal challenges with a mental illness to empower others and help support them in making meaningful changes in their lives can have a profound effect on the life of the peer specialist as well.
While the majority of peer specialists work in community based peer support the opportunities for employment in other areas of the mental health service system are expanding. CPSs have now been integrated into the prisons, the Veterans Administration, crisis centers, in-patient units, emergency rooms, and Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) teams to name a few. As the profession matures job opportunities will continue to expand.
