Event description

Description

Are you a peer specialist looking for the next step in your career or volunteer work? Or, maybe your organization is looking to demonstrate the proven skills of your peer specialists to clientele and health care insurers?

If yes, then it’s time to get nationally certified!

The MHA National Certified Peer Specialist (MHA-NCPS) certification was initiated, created and developed by peers who have the experiences, trainings, and job experience to work alongside healthcare teams. This is the first national, advanced peer specialist certification and Mental Health Connecticut (MHC) is the northeast program facilitator affiliate for both the test preparation course and the test.

Why do we need national certification?

MHA’s goal with national certification is to improve mental health and substance use recovery for individuals by expanding the much-needed workforce and credentials of peer specialists. A nationally certified peer specialist works in both public and private settings to help others achieve progress through recovery and self-management. True to the peer support spirit, the MHA-NCPS credential does not mean a peer is a clinician. The MHA-NCPS credential emphasizes the principles, guidelines, and core values of peer support. The certification is designed to build upon and enhance current peer-to-peer programs in each state, not replace current peer trainings.

MHC is offering test preparation courses. Testing is now available on the fourth Friday of the month. All classes and tests take place at 61 South Main Street, Suite 206, West Hartford, CT 06107.

For more information, visit www.mhconn.org/NCPS or email NCPS@mhconn.org for more information.

*Master Classes do not replace training requirements for the MHA NCPS certification.

All Master Class and test fees must be paid by check or cash the day of the event-unless paying by credit card.
