Peer-to-peer services treat recipients as equals:

MHASP’s Friends Connection participated in the prestigious COSP study funded by CMHS, and has helped build the evidence base for peer-to-peer services.

MHASP’s Institute for Recovery and Community Integration trains and certifies CPS.


The Consumer Recovery Investment Funds Self-Directed Care (CRIF SDC) program puts consumers in the driver’s seat.
