On today’s show, Melvina and Carol host Alethea Lambert and Mary McQuown from Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services to talk about peer recovery support and specialists.

“A peer support specialist is a person with “lived experience” who has been trained to support those who struggle with mental health, psychological trauma, or substance use. Their personal experience of these challenges provide peer support specialists with expertise that professional training cannot replicate.”
