|Peer Supports at FCS
Peer Support Specialists at Frontier Community Services focus on assisting those with dual diagnoses, adults experiencing developmental disabilities and a behavioral health diagnosis.
Peer Support Specialists are uniquely qualified through their own Lived Experience. Lived Experience refers to personal choices and knowledge gained along the way in the Peer's own process towards independence.
Peer Support Specialists are at a point in their own life where they have the skills to live as independently as possible, have the abilities to support themselves, and are ready to help others learn skills to manage their own lives or grow to the next step.
Peer Support Specialists work within the Behavioral Wellness Program at Frontier Community Services and are overseen by Frontier's in-house Clinician, Cindy Vasilie, MS for Clinical Supervision.
Currently all the Peer Support Specialists are working towards gaining the brand new, as of January 2021, Specialist Certification.
