Peer Delivered Services (PDS) provide support to individuals who are experiencing struggles with mental health and co-occurring issues. Support provides individuals hope that recovery is possible and the belief that an individual with a mental health or substance use issue can live a healthy, happy, and productive life.
Individuals interested in providing PDS must meet the definition of a “true peer”. This is someone who self-identifies as an individual that has received or is receiving mental health or substance use services. ABLE’s training programs are centered around principles of recovery and compassion for others. True peers model recovery, promote wellness and practice self-care.
