Certified Peer Supporter
About Rosemary Weaver
I believe that peer support is more than an occupation or certification - it's a way of life. Although my professional certifications include National Certified Peer Specialist, Certified Recovery Peer Specialist and a Copeland Center trained Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) facilitator; my most authentic credential is my lived experience. I have been providing peer support professionally since 2008 in the community mental health system, in-patient settings, and informal community settings. My personal challenges with mental health issues allow me to provide recovery skills in a variety of ways including individual peer coaching, online and in-person support group meetings, and providing Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) training. I know first hand the struggle of returning to the workforce after a mental health crisis. My areas of expertise include Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC), the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), Social Security, and Medicaid and Medicare issues.
Recovery StoryRecovery is an exciting, lifelong adventure for me!
GreetingsWelcome to Hey Peers. I have been a certified peer support specialist since 2008 and I am so excited to see how the field has grown. I have gained a lot of knowledge in my recovery journey both through self-reflection and learning from others.
My Motivation To HelpPeer support has been instrumental in my own recovery. I think I was born an advocate and have always been the type of person who desires to help others. Now with peer support I can help others going through struggles similar to my own.
