on the International Association of Peer Supporters
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 inter-National 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.
As with the original NAPS organization, the new Inter-National 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.
