This 90-minute workshop will show Nebraska behavioral health providers how to champion the introduction of peer support into new and existing services by addressing three key areas of importance:
1. The value of peer support: what it is and is not, certification, which services can most benefit, and where you will see returns.
2. The decision to implement and/or improve peer support services and how to prepare your organization.
3. Preparing to employ peer support staff: hiring, supervising, and
providing support.
