What is the definition of Wellness in a Non-Clinical Setting?

Our definition of wellness in a non-clinical setting is:

Increasing awareness of needs and remaining connected with the body and feelings, while learning the principles of self-nurturing and self-building such as:

  • Basic principles of self-care

​What is the definition of Recovery and Peer Recovery Support?

Our definition of Recovery

Recovery is a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.

Our definition of Peer Recovery Support Specialist

A Peer Recovery Support Specialist is a person with "lived experience" who has been trained to support those who struggle with mental health, psychological trauma, or substance use. Their personal experience of these challenges provides peer support specialists with expertise that professional training cannot replicate.
