Programs Employer Services About Support JEVS

Peer Support Services empowers individuals with disabilities to control their support systems, make lifestyle choices, and achieve recovery goals.

Certified Peer Specialists (CPS) help participants take the primary role in developing their own customized Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), which outlines recovery goals and the steps to reach them.
