MVPN BASIC TRAINING
MetroCare Services and the Military Veteran Peer Network are proud to present MVPN Basic Training. Service Members, Veterans and their Family Members are familiar with the Peer 2 Peer model as it is based upon the “Battle Buddy” system used by the U.S. Military. A “Battle Buddy” is a pairing of two Service Members with the expectation that each partner will provide maximum, even life-saving assistance to the other.
In the military, these partners ensure for each other’s mission preparation, check each other’s battle gear, continuously provide protection and support, and work as a team to complete missions and tasks. The bottom line is that these partners “Have each other’s back”. They watch out for each other, work together, and take care of each other. The P2P model is designed to help Veterans learn to help other Veterans by providing basic but essential training in the skills and information needed to serve as Peer Support. The P2P model does NOT rest upon or succeed because of any governmental agency, veteran service organization, or any other type of formal corporation or entity. Peer Support may make use of the agencies to provide support for his or her fellow Veteran, but the power of the P2P model is found in the one on one, individual connection, intervention, and care found in a peer relationship.
P2P works because YOU work! P2P will work in our community because of those you trained and willing to step into chaos of life and engage in meaningful, significant, and supportive relationships! The training consists of eight hours of instruction and role playing.
