Certified Peer Recovery Specialists

Research shows that peers can play a tremendous role in helping others in recovery from mental illness. Peers learn best from others who have been there.

Health insurers, treatment centers and others in the behavioral health arena are increasingly relying on peers to serve in leadership roles to assist others in recovery.

To assist peers in stepping into those leadership roles, NAMI Florida can assist individuals in becoming Certified Peer Recovery Specialists (CPRS).

We are approved by the Florida Certification Board as a provider of training and volunteer hours for individuals seeking to become a CPRS.
