The Maryland Peer Advisory Council (MPAC) will support, advocate, and educate the peer workforce within Baltimore City, and the State of Maryland. MPAC will also encourage and promote quality peer delivered recovery support services to individuals, families, and communities, as well as federal, state, and local agencies.
MPAC will recruit peers from the existing peer workforce (paid and volunteer) to establish its membership. MPAC will ensure the delivery of quality peer-led recovery support services by collaborating with local and national recovery friendly agencies and organizations. We will enhance the peer workforce knowledge and skills by incorporating the following core strategies.
Develop educational materials for public distribution regarding the value of peer delivered services.
Collaborate and partner with agencies and organizations that promote and/or improve recovery support services.
Advocate for system wide integration of peer workforce and the delivery of peer recovery support services
Support state and local efforts to develop and improve access to training for the peer workforce.
Advocate to state legislators for improved recovery friendly legislation.
Create annual recovery events and activities that enhance social and recreational support.
