Transcript of Montgomery County PA CPS Training 2016

Montgomery County, PA Department of Behavioral Health
Transform Your Life in 2016:
Peer Support Certification Training

Peer Support is....
A system of giving and receiving help founded on key principles of respect, shared responsibility, and mutual agreement of what is helpful....It is about understanding
another’s situation empathically through the shared experience of emotional and psychological pain. When people find affiliation with others whom they feel are “like”them, they feel a connection. This connection, or affiliation, is a deep, holistic
understanding based on mutual experience where people are able to “be” with each other without the constraints of traditional (expert/patient) relationships."
-Shery Mead
