Pillars of Peer Support Services Summit Six: Peer Specialist Supervision
The Pillars of Supervision outlined in this report can provide useful guidance for the advancement of high quality supervision of peer specialists.
The Pillars of Peer Support were originally designed to foster the development of the peer specialist workforce, and to describe the core principles of the roles and services they provide. Since the development of these pillars, they have been reported and adopted across systems that provide these services. The Pillars of Peer Specialist Supervision have evolved from requests for the development of a set of principles that can help guide organizations that employ this workforce. These new pillars for supervision can serve as guidance for organizations, individual supervisors, and peer specialists as they navigate the evolving growth of these service roles. As with the original pillars, they can provide direction, guidance, and technical assistance to behavioral health professionals on best practices for the peer specialist workforce.
