TA Coalition Webinar: Peer Support: A Critical Component in Supported Housing
There is scientific evidence that adding peer support to traditional mental health and substance use services decreases substance use, reduced psychiatric hospitalization, improves social functioning, and increases the likelihood of stabilization, well-being and recovery. There is also a growing body of evidence that the addition of peer support within housing services, when implemented effectively, results in stronger engagement, decreased symptoms and increased self-efficacy and independence. This webinar will explore peer support within housing models and strategies to effectively include and implement the role.
