Family peer support monthly series launches Oct. 22
Editors' Note: This story ran in our October newsletter, published Oct. 1.
The brand new Family Peer Support: An Emerging Workforce Webinar Series, drawing from themes outlined in our August webinar by the same name, launches at 12 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22.
Co-hosted by Omaha-based Community Alliance, this series will expand upon SAMHSA-published competencies in peer support and shed light on the human impact. It will explore how persons with lived experience as a family member, friend or other caregiver of a person with a mental illness can support others in a similar situation, and discuss the training needs of this emerging workforce. Special guests with experience in the field will help tell this important story.
