Peer Specialist Resume Samples

Working alongside highly trained and educated professionals, the job task of a Peer Specialist is to use their experience and techniques in providing support and guidance to others who are yet to recover from mental or health disorders or addictions. Job duties commonly mentioned on the Peer Specialist Resume are – providing support to the patients, developing a long-lasting and trusting relationship with patients using their personal experiences, coordinating patients– logistics, creating and implementing social activities, identifying resources for the patients and providing additional treatment services.

To foster this kind of relationship with the patients, the Peer Specialist should be able to demonstrate these skills – a demonstrable experience in providing peer support, mental health experience, the ability to connect deeply with patients, and willingness to travel. More than formal education, employers want real-time experience, knowledge of Medicaid care and bilingual speaking skills for this role.
