Peer support services have expanded to a wide variety of behavioral health environments and within a range of program models. Because peer support services represent a relatively new service within behavioral health services, there may be too few supervisors who understand the peer role well enough to supervise peer workers. Primarily for practitioners who are supervising peer workers, this group of resources helps supervisors understand how to supervise peer workers in behavioral health services.
