My Health My Resource Tarrant 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.
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 power of the P2P model is found in the one on one, individual connection, intervention, and care found in a peer relationship.
What makes Peer to Peer work?
P2P works because YOU work! P2P will work in our community because those of you trained and willing to step into chaos of life and engage in meaningful, significant, and supportive relationships!There is no cost for the training and it consists of instruction and role playing. Lunch is also included.
