Jorea M. Kelley Hardison, NCPT

In 2011, PARfessionals was established by 32-year-old Jorea M. Kelley-Hardison, a consumer peer with lived and professional experience while she completed an internship at MHMR of Tarrant County. After experiencing discriminatory and biased treatment both personally and professionally, she felt that a sincere effort needed to be made to reduce stigma and discrimination faced by peers and their families in the community and workplace. Ms. Kelley-Hardison, along with assistance from medical doctors, clinicians and other behavioral health professionals across the globe developed the PARfessionals' Peer Recovery Navigator Workforce Development Program. The PARfessionals's branded program is 100% funded by Ms. Kelley Hardison's family, The SJM Group, formerly The SJM Family Foundation. Connect with Jorea on
