This training is designed to prepare people who are in personal recovery from a mental illness to provide support services to help other adults in their recovery (not designed for supporting families). You will discover powerful resources to equip you to be effective in safely supporting people who are receiving mental health services.
You will be introduced to the attributes, roles, duties and guidelines for a Peer Specialist. You will also take a personal look at your own recovery, motivations for helping others, and career development.
Peer Specialists Inspire Hope for Recovery.
It is crucial to have access to people who have experienced similar struggles and to hear that they have been able to move forward in their lives with dignity and new possibilities.
