Certified Peer Specialist State Certification Survey Results
We are pleased to post the survey findings in the attached documents: as of the first quarter of 2016, there were 25,417 Certified Peer Specialists in the U.S., including states, the District of Columbia and the Veterans Administration system. These numbers do not indicate how many certified peer specialists were working at that time; and they also do not include numbers from California, which has a large number of peer specialists though no state certification; and Ohio was in the process of transitioning between certification structures, so their 1,500 CPS were not included.
Our sincere thanks to all who participated in developing and circulating the survey and especially those who responded to it.
