Demystifying the Peer Workforce: A Workshop for Non-Peer Professionals
This 2-day workshop is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the role of Certified Peer Specialists, the value added to the organizations where they work, and common challenges experienced when implementing peer support services in traditional mental health provider settings.
Participants will come away from the training with a greater appreciation of how peer support services and clinical services can complement one another and an awareness of how to effectively promote peer support services within your organization. This interactive workshop has been useful for administrators, supervisors, and clinical staff that want to promote collaboration across roles to effectively promote recovery within mental health service settings.
Organizations can inquire about how to host a session of Demystifying the Peer Workforce by contacting Peer Services Implementation Coordinator, Alejandra Adan.
