Jacquies’ PlaceThe Jacqueline Gomez-Arias Peer of the Year Award
Recovery for me has involved the development and “movement” towards new meaning and purpose in my life as I grow beyond the catastrophic effects of immigration, discrimination, oppression, mental illness, substance abuse and poverty. It is a voluntary maintained lifestyle characterized by sobriety, personal health, spiritual growth and citizenship!
This award will be presented to a Certified Peer Support Specialist (CPSS) nominated by other peers or an agency and selected by the Peers in Recovery Conference Committee, which is representative of consumers, families, and agencies. Self-nominations will also be accepted.
