Idaho Hope Team

ID-HOPE Team members include CTI Specialists who are Masters and Bachelor level mental health service providers in social work and counseling specialty areas, or Certified Peer Specialists. All team members are knowledgeable in the Motivational Interviewing approach, which is used to facilitate the implementation of Critical Time Intervention. Our CTI team provides specialized assistance in Crisis Intervention Services, accessing housing, accessing employment, applying for SSI/SSDI, and eligibility for Medicaid enrollment. Peer Specialists have the additional ability to use their personal experiences with mental illness to connect with participants using unique insight, empathy, empowerment, and support while facilitating self direction and a path to recovery.
