Inspiration Panel #1: Why I Became an Adult Peer Support Specialist (The Inspiration Series: Learning from Adult, Family, and Youth Peer Supporters)
July 10 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
This webinar series is designed for leadership and clinical staff in mental health organizations to hear from Adult, Family, & Youth Peer Support Specialists who will share their personal stories of recovery and how, through Peer Support Services, they were inspired to step into their role as a Peer Support Specialist. Participants will learn about the services they provided, supervision and support received, and how they contributed to a multidisciplinary team approach. As a clinic leader or member of the clinical staff you will consider new ways to collaborate and partner with peer support staff.
In this session our panelists discuss the power of peer support and what inspired each of them to step into their role as adult Peer Support Specialist, Program Director, and Supervisor. They describe their personal journey from receiving mental health services to becoming providers (and/or supervisors) of Peer Support Services, the transformational work they do, and the added benefits adult Peer Support Specialists can bring to the whole team to enrich overall services.
