PEER Support Program

The Peer Support Program is provided by individuals that have a mental health diagnosis and/or substance abuse issues.  The objectives of this program are to give individuals hope and to support each person in setting and achieving goals in their recovery.  Peer Specialists aim to empower fellow peers to grow and advocate for themselves in the areas of health, education, community involvement and other aspect of their daily lives.

Peer Support serves residents of Bucks County aged 18 and above who are diagnosed with a mental illness and are receiving services through Penndel Mental Health Center.  Once determined eligible for this service, the individual works with a Peer Specialist to determine their personal goals.  Then, through the building of a relationship of mutual respect, trust, hope and education, the specialist will provide guidance and encouragement that will assist the individual as they journey toward recovery.

Referrals are generated through a treatment professional (therapist, psychiatrist, or case manager).  In order to be eligible for this service, an individual must currently have Medical Assistance/Health Choices insurance coverage.
