The VA acknowledges the vital role of peer support specialists in helping our Veteran population. Let’s appreciate their significant contribution to the VA team.
According to Mental Health America and Peers for Progress, peer support is a powerful strategy for ongoing physical, mental, and addiction healthcare, facilitating sustained behavior change. It benefits not only those with challenges but also fosters change, awareness, and stigma reduction in communities and beyond.
