The Peer Provider Workforce in Behavioral Health: A Landscape Analysis


This report summarizes the findings of a landscape analysis on the topic of peer providers in mental health (MH) and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment services. To describe the landscape, we used a series of terms to capture the many titles and roles peer providers play, and conducted a literature search of peer-reviewed and published studies and reports, as well as a search of the “grey” literature on several topics, including:

  • Peer Support Roles, Organizational Settings, and Models of Care UCSF Health Workforce Research Center on Long-Term Care Research Report 6
  • Integration of Peer Providers into Traditional Care
  • Evidence of Efficacy of Peer Support
  • Policy and Financial Infrastructure for the Peer Support, including Billing, Reimbursement, and Sources of Funding for Peer Support Programs
  • Training and Certification for Peer Support
