Carlo Topalian is the Program Director for the CORE program. He holds an M.A. in Sociology and a Peer Specialist Certification. Carlo likes working at PRPSN because it has afforded him the opportunity of working in a supportive organization where everyone is equally dedicated to the mission and shares the same vision. For Carlo, peer support occurs when people help provide knowledge and lived experience with each other on their journey toward recovery. Carlo is driven by the values of integrity and empowerment. When he is not working, he enjoys reading, sports, and spending time with his cats.
