Peers Across Alabama Virtual Resource Hub

Peers Across Alabama is a virtual resource hub for Certified Peer Specialists across the State of Alabama. This project was funded by a federal grant received from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration in 2021 and has been an ongoing project by Wings Across Alabama to meet consumers where they are, particularly in rural areas.

Peers Across Alabama Virtual Resource Hub for Certified Peer Specialists is designed to support Certified Peer Specialists with guiding group sessions, particularly in rural areas that lack access to mental health services, empower consumers by telling their stories, create community and networking among Certified Peer Specialists, and serve as a wellness tool to support recovery and prevent relapse.

Peer Empowerment Videos aim to elevate the stories and lived experiences of peers.

The Peer Educational Library is designed to provide interactive materials, tools, and resources to lead group sessions. The Peer Educational Library includes instructional materials, including self-guided videos to create a recovery relapse plan, a self-guided workshop to create one’s own empowerment video, and a mindfulness module that walks consumers through various wellness activities that support their ongoing recovery.

In addition to the free services offered through Wings Across Alabama, Certified Peer Specialists can find links to additional resources to support themselves in their work supporting other peers on this page.
