Focus on Peer Integration

UMKC is also focusing on integrating peer services into non-traditional settings such as labor and delivery units, local libraries, shelters, emergency rooms and primary care clinics.

Peers can work in a range of settings, including recovery community centers, recovery residences, drug courts and other criminal justice settings, hospital emergency departments, child welfare agencies, homeless shelters, and behavioral health and primary care settings. In addition to providing the range of support encompassed in the peer role, they take an active role in outreach and engagement within these settings.
