Where:

Description:

Mental health peer support is a relatively new initiative in the mental health recovery movement through which people who have achieved a high level of recovery from a diagnosed mental illness are able to assist others in the recovery process by providing the following types of services: empathetic listening; referral to healthcare services; accompaniment to doctor appointments; advocacy for patient-driven decision making; and life coaching. This session will describe how a person can become a certified peer support specialist. It will include a demonstration of peer support and how it plays an important role in the recovery process.
