    Certified Peer Specialist Program Director
    Full-Time Salaried Position
    The Certified Peer Specialist (CPS) program is
    a supportive service to individuals and their families receiving mental health and/or
    substance use recovery supports and services. CPSs work from the perspective of their
    lived experience to help build environments conducive to recovery. They promote hope,
    personal responsibility, empowerment, education, and self-determination in the
    communities where they serve. CPSs are trained to assist others in skill-building,
    problem-solving, setting up and maintaining self-help mutual support groups, and building
    self-directed recovery tools. A critical role of the CPS is willingness to self-identify their
    lived experience, using it as a tool for helping others in developing recovery goals and
