In this presentation, Mid-America MHTTC specialists and partners with Omaha-based Community Alliance will demonstrate ways in which family peer support empowers families to support their loved one’s desire to work. In particular, participants will learn how recipients of family peer support:
- Learn to engage their loved ones in conversations about employment and help them become motivated to work;
- Learn to support their loved ones with job development and seek referral for vocational rehabilitation and supported employment;
- Learn to help their loved ones thrive and find independence at work.
