Identification of Best Practices in Peer Support Programs: White Paper

As part of its ongoing mission, the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) explored how to most effectively apply peer support in the military environment. The military has created a culture in which service members take care of each other. Common experiences, particularly for those who have served in combat, bind individuals together. Shared experiences are the foundation for peer support, as they foster the initial trust and credibility necessary for developing relationships in which individuals are willing to open up and discuss their problems despite concerns about stigma. Peer-to-peer programs facilitate opportunities for individuals to talk with trained peer supporters who can offer educational and social support and provide avenues for additional help if needed.
