Back to Serious Mental Illness Virtual Training Archive


Family Peer Support Webinar Banner FINAL




Families of persons with serious mental illness play an important role in the lives of their loved ones. In addition to being caring siblings, parents or spouses, they often function as caregivers and can be an asset to any mental health team to assure optimal benefit of treatment. A new workforce is emerging to support these families. Family Peer Support workers are persons with a lived experience trained to provide support to other family members who are caring for a person with a serious mental illness. This webinar will introduce family peer support as a profession, explore its roles and functions, and highlight specific training needs.
