The WCNY-IPA is the only statewide, genuine peer-run collaborative in New York. Our partners provide an array of services that meet or exceed national best practice standards.
Our Mission: “To eliminate the disparities and marginalization of care in NYS communities through the development and implementation of best practices for peer support that are innovative, peer-run, holistic, and trauma informed.”
Regional Peer Network (RPN)
The Regional Peer Networks are a special project of the WCNY-IPA. We have one RPN Partner organization in each of the five Office of Mental Health regions.
Each RPN Partner staffs a RPN Coordinator to serve as a local ambassador to bring larger awareness around building peer support and the peer workforce, as well as improving the quality of peer services and their outcomes.
For more information or to be connected with your RPN Coordinator, please e-mail [email protected].
