  Certified Peer Specialist Services

 

Minnesota passed legislation in 2008 ensuring that Certified Peer Recovery Specialists would be trained, certified, and employed in our state to assist people in recovery from a mental illness. The first group of certified peer recovery specialists graduated from an intensive two-week training held in St. Paul in July 2009.

“A Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS) is a paid staff person with a mental health diagnosis who has successfully completed training and certification to help her/his peers identify and achieve specific life goals. A CPRS works within Assertive Community Treat-ment, Intensive Residential Treatment, Crisis Response and Adult Mental Health Rehabilitative programs.

A CPRS promotes self-determination, personal responsibility and empowerment inherent in recovery, and assists people with psychiatric diagnoses to regain control over their lives and their recovery process. Northern Pines peer support specialists work throughout our six-county region helping people with their personal recovery.
