Recovery LIVE! Strategies for Supervising Peer Support Workers
Thu, April 27, 2017, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
Peer support workers use their lived experience and specialized training to guide, support, and educate people in or seeking recovery from substance use disorders and/or mental health challenges.
In this virtual event, SAMHSA’s Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) team will talk about defining peer support roles and providing supervision to peer support staff to successfully incorporate peer support services into an organization.
