 Tell us about your Virtual/Digital/Tele-Peer Support Experience and Technology Needs:

A survey for Peer Support Specialists and Supervisors/Managers of Peer Support Services

We know how hard Peer Support Specialists have been working during the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting stay-at-home orders. Your efforts to provide peer tele-support, or supervise those supports, have ensured people remain connected and able to access the critical services and supports they need and desire. Please tell us how it is going and what resources you might continue to need.

Your feedback is important, and your answers are anonymous. We do not ask for your name.

·        If you are a peer support specialist, complete the survey -

·        If you are a supervisor or manager of peer support services, complete the survey -

·        If you are director and would like multiple copies of the paper version of the survey mailed to your location, please email

(Include yours or the person's name and the address it should be sent to. We will provide a paper version of the survey with a postage paid envelope for return.)

Thank you for your feedback on this important subject!
