Mission

To develop, grow and nurture peer support and peer run services, Alaskan Style.

Vision

The Alaska Peer Support Consortium is a statewide network of peer operated, peer support organizations. Each member organization addresses peer support in a very unique way, following their own communities' strengths, needs, and values. We are a group of groups which provides organization to organization support, recovery education, collective advocacy and being each other's advocates. We find that by gathering together, and finding our shared common experience, we can take care of ourselves better and provide a model for society of wellness. We cultivate new leadership in the peer movement and encourage consumers to gather, mentoring start up groups and encouraging support groups to form all over the state. We are a sustainable community of peer leaders dedicated to leading the charge toward making Alaska's human services one of the most effective and peer driven systems in the world.

What is a peer?

Someone with lived, personal experience of behavioral health issues, including mental illness, addiction, developmental disabilities, Alzheimer’s and related dementia, and similar challenges. A primary caretaker of someone with these experiences is also often defined as a peer.
