A youth peer support program is a service that provides guidance, mentoring, and advocacy to youth and young adults who are experiencing behavioral health challenges (mental health and/or substance use disorders). A youth peer support program utilizes certified youth peer supporters (CYPS), who are individuals between the ages of 18-30 who have direct lived experience with behavioral health challenges and who have completed an approved 40-hour training by OhioMHAS.

The Alliance will provide $50,000 of funding for mini-grants of up to $10,000 each for a scope of work covering April 1-June 30, 2024. The goal of these mini grants is to increase the availability and accessibility of youth peer support services in Ohio, and to promote the recovery, wellness, and resilience of youth and young adults with behavioral health challenges
