Certified Peer Support
Pennsylvania MENTOR’s Certified Peer Support (CPS) services provide support and resource coordination for adults who have been diagnosed with a mental illness. CPS services help reduce the risk of future hospitalizations by helping adults develop life skills needed to perform daily living tasks and access community resources they need to remain stable across all areas of life.
We help the adults we serve access housing, transportation, therapy, medical and other services that can help them achieve their recovery and personal goals.
Staff also help individuals develop independent living skills such as using public transportation, as well as attending community events and participating in recovery groups.
Support for the Journey Through Recovery
CPS services are provided by Pennsylvania MENTOR employees who are in recovery from their own mental health challenges. Because they understand the difficulties of recovering from mental illness, CPS staff are educators, coaches, role models and advocates for the people they serve. They provide vital emotional support and encouragement along the individual’s journey through recovery. Staff who provide these services have at least a high school diploma and are certified to provide Certified Peer Support to individuals with mental health challenges.
Certified Peer Support services are available in Northampton and Lehigh Counties. For more information, please contact Kevin Brockel, Program Director, at 610-867-3173.
