From the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) website:
“The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has identified and drafted a document that describes the foundational and essential core competencies required by a range of peer workers within behavioral health services. SAMHSA is offering the public the opportunity to review and provide comments on the document.”
