During the past thirty years there has been a growing cohort of persons diagnosed with mental illness who have challenged this notion and become influential architects of a peer-operated (or delivered) service model. Peer-operated services are viewed as a legitimate complement to, and an alternative service for, mental health consumers. The Presidenta ™s New Freedom Commission of Mental Health Final Report (2003) suggests that peer-operated services, for which an evidence base is emerging, should be promoted and researched. This book will feature the peer-operated service model including innovative services and organizations that hold promise for transformation of the mental health service delivery system. The edition will provide the historical and philosophical underpinnings of the peer delivered service model and research supporting this model. The book also includes examples of successful models including: an overview of, and research data from self-help centers; a peer-delivered wellness education program offered at state psychiatric hospitals; and a case study of a large peer-operated service organization. Practical suggestions for a stronger collaboration between peer-operated and professional services will be highlighted. This book was published as a special issue of Occupational Therapy in Mental Health.
