Non-traditional health care workers need training and certification

0 Comments | Posted

 Great article in the Lund Report pointing out the need for training and certification for navigators, peer wellness specialists and other non-traditional health care workers. The Network is supportive of the efforts in states (like the Family and Youth Roundtable in San Diego, California) and nationally (Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health) to certify family peer and support specialists, but family organizations in all 50 states need to get busy if you want to be a part of the changes in health care that are happening now. This article about efforts in Oregon underscores the urgency of getting certification and training up and running. Get busy folks and get involved with your state exchanges - we need to be ahead of the curve on this one.
