Our Message

Peer Support is a powerful tool.  A Peer’s life experience sends a powerful message of hope that extends past the clinical reach of treatment.


 Peer Specialists are empathetic, connecting through mutuality.  Individuals benefiting from Peer Support are empowered through a genuine and mutual sharing atmosphere.  Many who have received Peer Support feel a passion to support others as they have been supported.

As Peer Support has grown in Washington State, Peer Support professionals have desired to connect and network.  It is our hope that WaPAC can be a tool for connecting, sharing resources, and advocating for Peer-Run services and supports.
