(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Governor Eric J. Holcomb today announced a partnership between the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction and Mental Health America of Indiana to expand access to trained peer support recovery professionals through the Indiana Recovery Network.
Peer supports are trained professionals with personal experience with mental health or substance use disorder who work alongside and support others with their recovery.
“Now more than ever, these expanded peer recovery options are essential to supporting those experiencing mental health issues and substance use disorders,” Gov. Holcomb said. “I’m thrilled that this partnership will help ensure Hoosiers have access to the resources they need as we live through this historic pandemic.”
