Abstract

This article provides a snapshot of the nature, guiding philosophy, and empiric status of interventions for people with schizophrenia that go beyond traditional psychopharmacological and psychosocial treatments to include peer-led interventions. The authors discuss the nature and principles of peer-led interventions for people with schizophrenia and the types of peer-led interventions along with evidence of their effectiveness in fostering the recovery of people with schizophrenia and other severe mental illnesses. Focus is on 3 types of peer-led interventions: (1) mutual support/self-help, (2) consumer-operated services, and (3) peer support services.
