Peer Support Specialist Awards

We are thrilled to introduce, for the very first time, the IACP Peer Support Specialist Awards! Peer Support Specialists provide invaluable support, understanding, and guidance to individuals on their recovery journey. Their lived experiences and empathetic approach offer hope and inspiration, making a profound impact on the mental health and well-being of many. We are eager to honor this group.
