Peer Support Services (PSS)

peer support services

Peer Support Services (PSS) helps individuals ages 9-59 maintain wellness and recovery. PSS promotes ongoing recovery through the development of a relationship based on shared experience and mutuality between an individual and a Peer Support Specialist.

Individuals are partnered with a Specialist who has experienced personal challenges with mental health and found a path to healing and recovery. The Peer Support Specialist assists individuals in understanding components of recovery and resiliency, and how to apply these skills to achieve life goals. Participants of PSS will receive individual direct support as well as an opportunity to participate in Peer Support Groups.

To participate in Peer Support Services, the individual must meet the following criteria:

  • U.S. resident living in Cass, Dodge, Douglas, Sarpy or Washington counties in Nebraska
  • Meet financial eligibility requirements
  • Ages 9-59
  • Have a mental health diagnosis
