Many states and communities use peer specialists –people with lived experience of substance use or mental illness –as part of teams to promote recovery and intervene in times of crisis. In fact, many peer specialists help staff the 988 suicide hotlines in various states or become part of the mobile crisis teams. Join this upcoming webinar and learn what recent research has shown about the effective use of peers in behavioral health teams; and how we can ensure that peers have the tools they need to succeed and advance in this career path. There will be an open forum for Q&A with our guest speakers.
