Peer Practice: Diversity & Inclusion is a one-day training that teaches Peer Specialists to understand how diversity can show up in recovery and transformation, to become aware of and create strategies to address personal and organizational biases, and to learn how to build inclusive support groups.

  • Learn about, and develop awareness around different types of biases
  • Learn how to be more inclusive in setting up and delivering support groups
  • Recognize areas in their organization that would benefit from more diversity and/or improving avenues of inclusion
