Founded in November 2004 by a group of peer specialists, the National Association of Peer Specialists (NAPS) was a private, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting peer support in mental health and related systems of care. NAPS was open to anyone who provided support (paid or volunteer) for individuals in recovery from psychiatric, trauma, substance use, or any combination of related conditions and circumstances.On January 1, 2013, the National Association of Peer Specialists (NAPS) was renamed the International Association of Peer Supporters (iNAPS) to reflect its increasingly global membership and to correct a perception that NAPS was only for those trained as certified peer specialists in the mental health system.

 Our Name Has Changed But Our Mission Remains the Same! 

As with the original organization, the new International Association of Peer Supporters (iNAPS) will continue to be open to anyone who provides peer support services (paid or volunteer), aspires to provide peer support services, or is a champion for the recovery and peer support movement.
