The Northwest MHTTC in partnership with Pathways Research and Training Center (RTC) is pleased to announce a series of monthly consultation calls focused on “Advanced Topics in Strengthening Youth/Young Adult Peer Support.” This series is intended primarily for peer support specialists, their supervisors, and administrators charged with implementing youth/young adult peer support.

Join us each month from 10-11 AM Pacific for new consultation topics.

Pathways RTC Consult Calls

On Thursday, June 24th at 10AM (PST) Region 10 will discuss how youth peer support specialists work with youth's families and caregivers. Topics will include how to engage family members and caregivers, as well as common challenges or misconceptions that youth peer support specialists may face when working with caregivers and families.

Here's what you can expect from each consultation call:

  • Focus on one topic such as skill building, supervision, coaching and training, organizational policies and procedures, hiring and on-boarding, and more
  • Sharing a practical resource related to the meeting's topic, such as  a strategy, tool, set of research findings, or template
  • Time for focused discussion in which attendees can ask questions and share knowledge and ideas relevant to the day’s topic, followed by an open discussion of any topic related to youth/young adult peer support

To allow for interaction and discussion, registration will be limited. Register early to ensure your space! Attendees from each meeting will be given priority to register for the next one.
