Statewide Certified Peer Recovery Specialist Program

Parent Support Network is excited to serve as the lead partner agency to coordinate and implement the Statewide Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS) Program with all our program partners.  The Program is a contract with the State Department of Behavioral Health Developmental Disabilities & Hospitals (BHDDH) utilizing mental health block grant funds.  CPRS are individuals who are in recovery and have lived experience living with mental health and addiction challenges.

Statewide CPRS Program is focused on building shared leadership and commitment to recruiting, training, and hiring Peer Recovery Specialists to become certified and delivering peer recovery services across the state.


The CPRS Program holds monthly CPRS Leadership meetings with all of our partners, peer recovery specialists, and peers who have received recovery services. Monthly Leadership Meetings take place on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 11 am at PSN. For more information contact CPRS Program Coordinator, Erin Goodman at
