FEP Monthly Peer and Family Partner Networking Meeting: January
Contact us at [email protected]
The South Southwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC), invites Region 6 Peer Specialists and Family Partners working in First Episode Psychosis (FEP) and Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) teams to participate in our monthly networking meetings. These no-cost, virtual meetings offer you the opportunity to collaborate with other FEP/CSC Team Peer Specialists and Family Partners in a supportive, mentoring environment. The goal is provide a space for resource sharing, support around ways to be most effective when working with FEP/CSC clients, options for self-care strategies, and more! This event takes place on the first Friday of each month.
Certified Peer Specialist
I have years of experience facilitating groups as well as teaching. I have been in Peer Support close to two years now helping others with my shared life experience. I am now with FEP and am flourishing in the job.
Certified Family Partner
I have been working with the Integral Care RA1SE Team for 5 years and 7 months. I am fortunate to work and be part of an amazing team here in Austin. As a Certified Bilingual Family Partner, I am able to share my lived experience with families and help them navigate through community resources. My work background includes working with Travis County Juvenile Probation, Caseworker at Lifeworks for Homeless Foster Youth, and Arc of the Capital Area working with IDD services as well as with the Juvenile Justice Program. The work I am most proud of is with the Integral Care RA1SE team because it has allowed me the honor to walk with so many families through their own journey and to give them hope and encouragement in their most challenging moments.
