  1. I work as Peer Support Specialist II here at Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health. I saw your April 5th, 2016, “CAMHPRO Legislative Information” 2015 to 2016.
    I am inquiring about an update for SB-614. I had heard that there were some amendments made to this bill and that it might actually become a bill that will not be supported by Mental Health advocates here in California. Can you tell me if amendments have been made on this bill? I was hoping as PSS that this bill would help PSS in the State of California to get certified.
    It will be a great disappointment if this bill has changes in it and becomes something that we can not endorse.
    Thank you for your time,

  2. I am currently looking for information on becoming certified as a Peer Support Specialist. If anyone is possibly able to give me some pointers, what would be the first step for moving towards getting certified? I read that volunteer hours in the field is a part of the program, but what type of volunteer work should I pursue for this in order to get some experience? Thank you in advance.

    1. The State of California is still working on a framework for peer certification. We have weighed in on all the talking points and feel that 60% of our recommendations are going to be part of the plan that the Department of Health Care Services develops. Stay tuned, as soon your county will need to opt in to adopt a Peer Certification program.
