Keeping & Building Peer Connections through Online Peer Support
Collaborating TTC: Southeast MHTTC
April 20, 2020

The next frontier of peer support services started quickly. The rapid deployment of digital media tools to provide peer support services has created a new set of ongoing technical hurdles, but when people do get past those, what do they find? This webinar will focus not on the technical how to of online peer support, but how to provide meaningful support and keep people connected within that digital space. We will explore how to move traditional in-person activities to online activities, including how to adapt, and when adaptation is not practical or possible. Participants will also learn how to use traditional and social media to engage and expand peer participation in online wellness and support activities. By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Schedule diverse and meaningful support and wellness activities for peers
  • Identify online wellness and support activities that can replace traditional activities
  • Transition traditional peer engagement to online engagement
  • Maintain existing relationships with peers
  • Build new relationships with peers
