Description

"Ask Me Anything" Employment Series!

National Resource Center on Employment

You’re invited to ask an expert about another interesting topic related to employment!

On Thursday, February 28, 2019, from 2:00-3:00 pm EST, Lyn Legere, via webinar, will answer any questions you have related to Peers Supporting Vocational Recovery.


This free, online event is not a presentation, but rather an interactive question & answer webinar.


Regardless of whether you are a person living with a mental health condition, a family member, an administrator of a service, a provider, a researcher—you can use the time to ask anything related to Engaging People with Psychiatric Disabilities in Employment and Vocational Recovery to our guest expert.

For example, you could ask about:

  • Have you ever thought about how your own vocational recovery story might inspire people about work?

  • Are your peer workers inspiring people about work?

  • How can peer workers support people to consider, choose, get, or keep work?

Lyn Legere, MS, CPSS
Lyn Legere is a person in long-term recovery from mental health and substance use issues. After receiving her Master’s Degree in Psychiatric Rehabilitation from Boston University, she became immersed in the emerging peer specialist field. She has worked as a Certified Peer Specialist (CPS), trained CPSs, directed CPS training programs, and consulted nationally and internationally on best practices in peer support. She is the co-author of the Vocational Peer Support training program (BU) and wrote the North Carolina Employment Peer Mentor curricula. Most importantly, Lyn has experienced her own road to recovery AND vocational recovery, and believes this is a gift that all working peers have and can share.
