HCPS are persons in recovery from a mental illness who have received certification by the State of Hawai'i,
Department of Health, Adult Mental Heath Division (AMHD). Individuals are awarded certification only after
attending the HCPS Training, and successfully passing both oral and written examinations. HCPS promote
self-determination, personal responsibility, and community integration for consumers of the AMHD. HCPS
instill hope in others by serving as role models and champions of recovery.
The HCPS program was modeled after Georgia's Certified Peer Specialist Project.
