Definition of a Peer
Peer is defined as a person of equal standing. In the context of providing Peer Support, the word Peer is used in a broader sense to refer to people who share in common a mutual lived experience. However, in the field of recovery worker education, it is necessary to define peer in a stricter sense as someone who is either a co-worker or a person who works in a similar organizational background, or someone of the same generation or cultural background who has suffered the effects of mental illness, substance use and or addiction.
