This month, David Stark, MS, a Windhorse Certified Peer Specialist will present at the 17th Annual International Society for Psychological and Social Approaches to Psychosis (ISPS) conference in Philadelphia. The panel “Peers as Peer Supporters / Peers as Professionals: Recovery as Liberation,” will analyze the invaluable intersection of the professional process and the personal experience of peer support work. David’s portion of the panel discussion, “The Will to Recover: A Peer Professional’s View,” examines the way in which individuals can sustain lifelong recovery by being active participants in their own recoveries.
David has been an integral part of the Windhorse community for decades. A graduate of Princeton University, he was an early client of Windhorse and later joined the Board of Directors in 1997. In 1999, David became a Peer Support Specialist and has remained in that role ever since. In addition to his Peer Support work, he now serves as Windhorse Peer Educator.
