The Outreach Peer Specialist is a fully integrated outreach team member who provides linkage and referrals services to recipients with mental health and co-occurring disorders. Because of their personal life experiences with mental health wellness and co-occurring recovery, which demonstrates self-sufficiency, the Peer Specialist provides expertise that other professional training cannot replicate. The Peer Specialist will advocate, counsel, educate and find specific resources to refer/link the enrolled recipient(s) to reach their individual goals. The enrollment into the program for referrals/linkages will remain in place for six weeks. Once that timeframe has been reached the individual recipient will be closed out, however there could be exceptions if the recipient(s) needs further assistance in reaching their individual goal.
