Family Peer Support
Peer support is an important part of recovery from mental illness and substance use disorders. LBHS offers low cost peer mentorship in Spanish and English. People who are struggling with a mental/emotional condition or a substance use disorder can meet with a Certified Peer Support Specialist (CPSS). Family Members of people who are struggling with a mental/emotional condition or a substance use disorder can meet with a Family Resource Facilitator (FRF).
CPSS are people who have struggled with a mental/emotional condition or a substance use disorder and are maintaining recovery. They have skills learned in a formal training, to deliver services promoting recovery and resiliency.
FRFs are people who have a family member who has struggled with a mental/emotional condition or a substance use disorder. FRFs provide referrals to local resources and programs; advocacy for culturally appropriate services; links to information and support groups; and family wraparound facilitation. Each Family Resource Facilitator receives standardized training, coaching, and supervision.
