South Carolina Peer Support Program.

Offering hope through lived experience.
Loneliness and isolation are two of the debilitating effects of mental illness, substance use disorder, and co-occurring disorders. The support of another person who is in recovery may be the greatest source of hope and strength that a person can receive.

What is a Certified Peer Support Specialist?

A CPSS is a trained professional providing individualized recovery focused services. We offer hope, support, and advocacy to others through sharing our own experiences of living in recovery with mental illness and/or substance use disorder.

SC SHARE’s CPSS program envisions a society where recovery from mental illness, substance use and co-occurring disorders are understood, promoted, and embraced and where all who seek peer support services have access to the support, care, and resources people need to achieve long-term recovery.
