Please note: The monthly consultation calls ended in August 2021. Access past topics by clicking on the consultation calls below.

The Northwest MHTTC, in partnership with the Pathways Research and Training Center (RTC), is pleased to sponsor a series of monthly consultation web-meetings focused on “Advanced Topics in Strengthening Youth/Young Adult Peer Support.” Each call will have its own topic, in an area such as skill building, supervision, coaching and training, organizational policies and procedures, hiring and onboarding, and more. This series is intended primarily for peer support specialists, their supervisors, and administrators charged with implementing youth/young adult peer support. Join us on the third Thursday of each month from 10-11 AM Pacific/1-2 PM Eastern. Each session includes:

  • 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
