Peer support in mental health has recently gained significant attention. There is increasing talk about funding and credentialing, standards and outcomes. But what is peer support and how is it different than services, even services delivered by people who

We will offer some thinking about practice and evaluation standards that may help different types of peer initiatives sustain real peer support values in action. (Authors)
