Family Peer Supporter

Family Peer Support  - Link to OMHAS Information

A Certified Family Peer Supporter (CFPS) is an individual who has self-identified as the caregiver of a person with behavioral health challenges; and who has navigated the service systems for at least one year on behalf of the person. A caregiver may include a birth parent, adoptive parent, foster parent, legal guardian/custodian, or a person chosen by the family or youth to have the role of primary caregiver. CFPS support an individual’s or family’s ability to address needs, navigate systems and promote recovery, resiliency, and wellness. They promote services that are family driven, youth guided, trauma-informed, and culturally competent. A CFPS can provide both basic and intensive family support services and participate as an active member of treatment teams in a variety of settings.
