About the Program

Tuition, Internship Stipend, and other resources are paid for in full or in part
by a grant from IDHS/Division of Mental Health.

New Hope School of Counseling CRSS/CPRS Program is for individuals with lived experience in recovery from mental health and/or substance use. The program is geared to help students utilize their personal lived experience to help facilitate a supportive recovery environment that builds the resilience of individuals with mental illnesses, substance use disorders and/or dually diagnosed with both. 
Through course work and internship, CRSS/CPRS students will be able to apply their learned skills in combination with their lived experience and provide a holistic supportive approach to individuals in need. Course material focuses on advocacy, ethics, mentoring, and recovery support.
