Peer Supporters


eLicense Help
OhioPRO partners with peer organizations to create Peer eLicensing/Certification Technical Assistance Hubs.

Peer recovery services are community-based services for people with a mental illness or substance use disorder. Services are activities that promote recovery, self-determination, self-advocacy, well-being, and independence.

In Ohio, peer recovery supporters become certified by taking in-person training or by having three years of work or volunteer experience as a peer navigator, peer specialist, peer supporter, or peer recovery coach. Regardless of the pathway to certification, individuals must also have completed 16 hours of online E-Based Academy courses, which include topics such as ethics, human trafficking, and trauma-informed care, pass the OhioMHAS Peer Recovery Services exam, sign and agree to the OhioMHAS Peer Recovery Services Code of Ethics and pass a Bureau of Criminal Investigations (BCI) background check.
