Peer Support at CVBH is a partnership where certified staff or volunteers, who are in the process of their own recovery, assist people with mental health and/or substance abuse issues to identify, obtain, and achieve life goals as part of their own recovery process. Peer Support services may help those who:
- Are in crisis and need additional support
- Need support between therapy and physician appointments to work through difficult feelings, thoughts, and changes in their life
- Want to connect with other agencies and community resources which may be helpful to their recovery
- Are needing assistance with improving personal needs such as housing, food, healthcare, recreation, bereavement or occupational issues
Certified Peer Support Specialists (PSS) promote empowerment as well as self-determination through non-judgmental listening and person-centered goal setting. Please contact Peer Support Services in Hickory or Morganton by calling (828) 695-5900.
