"Embracing hope together"

About

 ABOUT

"Peer support is a part of the human experience. Being able to share experiences, help heal, guide, and warn one another is what bonds us as families, friends, and communities. There is a long history of peer support that we need to strengthen and cement here at this conference and throughout the coming year. Peers have continued to exercise their voice in their own treatment and recovery process. Today, peers are an essential partner in supporting recovery through mutual support, education, and advocacy across the nation, in the fields of mental health and substance use disorders."

The Jacqueline Gomez-Arias
Peer of the Year Award

Jacqueline was an experienced trainer, a wonderful mother and partner, and most importantly, a peer.

In her honor, the Jacqueline Gomez-Arias Award was created to recognize peers who share the same passion, drive, and love for serving our community. If you know of someone who fits this description, we invite you to nominate them for the "CPSS of the Year" Award.
