MHA Peer Programs

At MHA, we know the power of peer support and believe it must not only be integrated into all aspects of healthcare but also continue to expand services and supports beyond "treatment as usual."

MHA's Peer-focused programs include:

  • MHA's National Certified Peer Specialist Credential: To meet the growing demand for peers, MHA has developed the first national advanced peer specialist certification. The high standards let peers show their expertise and experience, which opens new career paths and more opportunities to transform lives and services. Click here to learn more.
  • It's My Life; Social Self-Directed Care Program: MHA developed a highly innovative intervention called It’s My life: Social Self-Directed Care that combines the evidence-based practices of Peer Support and Psychiatric Rehabilitation and the emerging best practices of Self-Directed Care and Life Coaching into an integrated skill and support strategy to help people build networks of friends and intimate relationships. Learn more about implementing this program in your community.
