Intentional Peer Support Overview

Intentional Peer Support (IPS) is a communications model established by Sherry Mead, MSW/Consumer. IPS is an emerging best practice, embraced by the New Jersey Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services as an effective way for peer providers to interact with other consumers in a professional setting. This approach is utilized by New Jersey’s Peer Recovery Warmline, a program of the Mental Health Association in New Jersey, and is being embraced by community mental health organizations nationwide.

In this IPS overview, participants will learn about the tasks of IPS:

  • Connection: Building Connection, Navigating Disconnection, Reconnection
  • Worldview: Helping Each Other Understand How We’ve Come to Know What We Know
  • Mutuality: Redefining Help as a Co-Learning and Growing Process
  • Moving Towards: Moving Towards What We Want Rather Than Away From What We Don’t Want
