Certified Recovery Peer Specialist

The FCB offers three levels of Recovery Peer Certification:

The Certified Recovery Peer Specialist (CRPS) credential is for those persons who possess competency in both family and adult peer mentoring. The CRPS must be a true peer; this means that the peer specialist must be a consumer of private or public mental health services AND is a first-degree relative or primary caregiver of a child diagnosed with a mental illness.  Download the application here.  (Print the application double-sided)

The Certified Recovery Peer Specialist - A (CRPS-A) provides peer mentoring and support to individuals who are consumers of mental health service systems and achieves resiliency and recovery as defined by the individual consumer. The CRPS-A must be a true peer; this means that the peer specialist is also a consumer of public or private mental health services.  Download the application here.  (Print the application double-sided)

The Certified Recovery Peer Specialist - Family (CRPS-F) credential provides peer mentoring and support to families that include at least one child diagnosed with a mental illness before his or her 24th birthday. The CRPS-F must be a true peer; this means that the peer specialist must be a first-degree relative or primary caregiver of a child diagnosed with a mental illness.
