The Dimensions: Peer Support Program Toolkit was developed by the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, School of Medicine, Behavioral Health and Wellness Program.
This toolkit contains evidence-based information about the effectiveness of peer support programs, the important role peers can play in an organization, as well as step-by-step instructions to create a successful and sustainable peer support program. It is designed for use by a broad spectrum of organizations, including hospitals, healthcare clinics, and community agencies, Organizations that serve populations that would benefit from a peer support program, such as behavioral health, chronic medical conditions, justice-involved, military, and homeless are encouraged to utilize this toolkit. The materials are intended for administrators, healthcare providers, support staff, and, of course, peer specialists.
