0 Comments | Posted

The Georgetown University National Technical Assistance Center for Children's Mental Health is offering a timely webinar this coming Thursday, May 22, 2014, from 1:00-2:30 PM E.T.

Making it Work: Family, Young Adult & Adult Peer Support -- Limitless Possibilities 
The world of Peer Support continues to expand. This webinar will provide consumers, administrators, managers and providers with an historical look at Peer Supports, examples of successful Peer Support implementation, and the latest communication from CMS regarding Medicaid reimbursement of these important supports. Presenters will cover the topics of Adult Peer Supports, Youth Peer Supports, and Family Peer Supports.

Participants will gain a greater understanding of the role Peer Support providers can play in addressing the growing need for an expanded mental health workforce. By tapping into this emerging, non-traditional pool, organizations can greatly enhance both the quality and volume of services and supports that are provided within their community. Presenters will share indicators that demonstrate that individuals often cite a greater level of comfort and higher satisfaction when Peer Support providers are involved in the supports and services received.
