In 2021, The National Council for Mental Wellbeing conducted a literature review (Peer Recovery Support: Evolving Roles and Settings, a Literature Review) to synthesize the current evidence related to the continued evolution of PRSS and the broader integration of peers into increasingly diversified community settings as well as to identify persisting gaps in the research. Since 2021, further research has been conducted on these topics with new and highly relevant themes, directions, and outcomes. In an effort to continue to highlight emerging literature and best practices in the field, the National Council for Mental Wellbeing has developed this document as an update to the previous Literature Review.
