To address the challenges of peer support program expansion and dissemination as well as the emerging opportunities, such as through the Affordable Care Act, the National Peer Support Collaborative Learning Network brought together a group of key opinion leaders, experts in the field, researchers, leaders of peer support programs and organizations, funders, Network members, NCLR Affiliates, and other members of the Peers for Progress Global Network. The diverse stakeholders at the conference represented community-based organizations, health care organizations, insurance groups and government agencies. Drawing from our dialogue with these participants, this report distills their collective wisdom regarding cultural, organizational, and implementation issues central to the development of comprehensive peer support programs and their broad dissemination.
