Family Peer Support and Navigation

​Family Peer Support and Navigation Services focus on empowering and informing families caring for loved ones with a mental health, substance use, gambling, and/or co- occurring behavioral health disorder(s).  Families are assisted with understanding and accessing systems, treatment and recovery supports, and both providing information about and connection to available resources.
Family peer support and navigation services are provided by peers (family members with lived experience in one or more areas) and are free of charge. 
BHA provides these services through a partnership with the Maryland Coalition of Families (MCF) www.mdcoalition.org ​
