Certified Youth Support Services (CYS)
We are pleased to announce that we now offer
Certified Youth Support Services for all youth ages 8 - 18.
This brand new community support program reflects the values, philosophies, intentions, and connectivity as both Idaho's newly adopted YES (Youth Empowerment Services) Program as well as the Certified Peer Support (CPS) and Certified Family Support (CFS) services. Each of these three services offer a Non-Authoritative approach.

Individuals in Certified Support Services work as peers, rather than authoritative mental health professionals. Here is what Idaho Health & Welfare describes Certified Peer Support Services as...
"Certified Peer Support Specialists (CPSSs) are critical in the Idaho mental health service system. These individuals have experienced a mental illness and recovery, and are well positioned to support others who are seeking recovery. Peers offer hope and encouragement by sharing their experiences and knowledge. They create opportunities for recovering individuals to live satisfying and meaningful lives.
Certified Peer Support Specialists provide hope for individuals, families, and communities recovering from mental illness by offering:
- Connections to a community of peers
- Encouragement and understanding
- Information on accessing resources
- Support through recovery"
Found on Health & Welfare's website
A Certified Peer's responsibility is to relate and support, not instruct. Certified Peers have been evaluated for eligibility to become certified by providing his or her own experiences with persistent mental health challenges and, more importantly, must be able to demonstrate how he or she has overcome and/or learned to manage these mental health challenges.
