Greetings! Glad you're here! We're working to strengthen Idaho’s peer support system and requesting your feedback about your experience working or trying to work as a peer provider in Idaho. We use this important information to report back to IDWH about how the system can be improved.

***When we use the term "peer provider", we are referring to peer support specialists, family support partners, and recovery coaches, and when we use the term "peer support", we are referring to the service that any of these 3 types of professionals provide.***

The goal of pooling your feedback is to help improve the way peer support works in Idaho so consumers' treatment needs are met. It is not to make accusations about agencies, organizations, colleagues, or otherwise. You are welcome to share your concerns about any of these entities, but please submit information in an objective manner. For example “XYZ happens in my work environment and this is why it makes me feel uncomfortable” and/or “the barrier to my success as a peer provider is XYZ”, etc.

Please do not include the names of coworkers, clients, or anyone else you may be sharing information about. It would be VERY HELPFUL for you to submit your name when providing feedback if you are comfortable doing so. Knowing who provided the feedback will allow us to look further into the matter. We will keep your name confidential unless we receive your permission to share it. If you'd like to contact Jess directly, you may do so at jwojcik@jannus.org.

We encourage everyone submitting concerns to also speak with your supervisor about the concerns you are experiencing. Situations do not get resolved unless we communicate about them.
