About Us

​​​The Addictions and Mental Health Services Division (AMH) recognizes the indisputable value of peer-delivered services (PDS) in transforming a behavioral health service delivery system that is based on recovery. AMH will work with consumers/survivors and stakeholders to develop strategies to increase the use and availability of peer-delivered services.​​​
