Employment

Employment as a peer professional can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. Having the opportunity to use your own personal challenges with a mental illness and/or substance use 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 professional as well.

While the majority of peer professionals work in community based peer or recovery support the opportunities for employment in other areas of the mental health and drug and alcohol service system are expanding. Peer professionals have 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 peer professions mature job opportunities will continue to expand.
