Monthly Webinar (Peer Certification)

State Peer/Family Certification 2nd Thursday at 12 noon

CAMHPRO has changed the format of this monthly webinar to highlight California and Other Model Peer Specialist Services beginning with one of our favorite counties: Riverside County.

We will invite other counties/agencies or states to present on their peer specialist service practices to demonstrate what is working and what is possible for the State of California. We will also provide policy updates, progress and funding as they happen regarding national and state peer specialist standardization or certification.

California is the last of a handful of states without a State protocol for certification of peer support specialists!

Join the conversation!

These CAMHPRO webinars are funded by the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) under the State Consumer Network grant.
