AARS Peer Partners support people in our community who are most impacted by mental health issues, many of whom are affected by substance use and trauma. Peer Partners are one of the first line of support when community members get released from the criminal justice system and emergency psychiatric services. Our team supports our community by providing compassionate, integrated, whole-person care. HealthRIGHT 360/AARS is a place for people to grow and be their best selves. Our team has an open mind to new ideas and models. We value a team who is close knit and can contribute towards a supportive, fun and positive work environment.
The Peer Partner is employed by Asian American Recovery Services (AARS) a program of HealthRIGHT 360 to deliver and coordinate services for Transitional Aged Youth (TAY) clients referred by the Santa Clara County Behavioral Health Services Department (BHSD). The Peer Partner will be an individual whose lived experience resembles the target population – Transitional Aged Youth – and who is actively engaged in rebuilding self and others. The Peer Partner will act as liaison to clients, help find community resources, and support organizing drop-in/pro-social recreational activities and family nights. The Peer Partner will support clients as they enter the program, throughout their duration, and link clients to peer support activities and other supportive community resources. These relationships will enable clients to build responsible, fruitful friendships with their peers who may serve as role models, conduits to other service, and linkage to aftercare.
