MHPS Training (eLearning)
June 22 - June 26
Due to the current COVID-19 crisis Via Hope is offering the Mental Health Peer Specialist training online. While the content of the training will not change the delivery method will vary. This means that the content will be provided via Zoom technology, through online discussion threads, and short interactive breakout sessions online.
Via Hope provides an interactive training to help people learn and practice the skills necessary to offer peer support to people receiving mental health services. Our forty hour training has 20 different modules that include the core values of Peer Specialists, how to use recovery stories to support other people, and peer support group facilitation. The training is provided by experienced internal staff and part-time trainers, all of whom are current Certified Peer Specialists.
