RESCHEDULED: Inspiration Panel #2: From Parent to Family Peer Advocate; Strengthening the Clinical Team, One Step at a Time!

August 31, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This webinar series is designed for the 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 Family Peer Support Services and what inspired each of them to step into their role as Family Peer Support Advocates. You will hear about their personal journey from raising children with significant challenges, and navigating children’s serving systems, to becoming providers of Family Peer Support Services. Panelists will speak to the transformational work they do and the added benefits Family Peer Support Advocates can bring to the whole team to enrich overall services.
